It's a tough decision to take a risk in the spring with run off and potential for snow. My first trip was in September and this past trip was late July. The weather was great both times, minus a little evening showers this time.
Here is a link to my June trip to Firehole, Madison, and Gibbon this summer:

It was great, but it snowed twice too. Brrr.

Thanks for the follow up.......I am a huge fan of the thermal section, especially the Gibbon Meadows, but only in the fall. The fishing pressure increases at this time, but there is good reason. Next time you go, stop by the Gibbon and be sure to stand away from the bank, and throw a live grasshopper in the water. You may be amazed at what comes out from under those undercut banks!!

Be sure to use a grasshopper you're not friends with.
