Not sure of the gear you will need
From Montana to Mongolia and everywhere else in between one of our crew has probably been there. We can help with the right gear to make that trip of a lifetime, or an afternoon on the local water more successful.
43 years ago I walked into The Tackle Shop for the first time and began my love affair with the Madison River. The river fishes today as good or better than it ever did and the service at The Tackle Shop has never been better. John, I thank you for making my Madison River experience beyond my expectations every year. See you this summer and every summer in the future.
John and his crew at The Tackle Shop are not only extremely knowledgeable about
the fishing in the area, they're also just a great bunch of people who are
genuinely happy to share their expertise while making friends and connections.
The store has an excellent selection of gear, and it's one of the few places
where I can find quality clothing made with fly fishing women in mind

Fishing and the Madison River in general is in full fall mode and we could not be happier. While the flows are lower than most would like and many of the mid river rocks are slowly being painted white from drift boat bottoms the Madison River is in good shape. In fact fishing has been best during bankers hours. The fish start eating with the first mayflies emergence about say 1030 in the morning and continue on till about 5. All very civilized.
The rapid cool down and rainy fall like conditions are just what The Madison River needed to jumpstart the fish into the happy fall zone. Barring summers return we will see fall like fishing going forward. This rain, snow up high and cooler weather dropped the river temps and energized the fish. What does this mean for fishing going forward this week? The powers that be at the dam just sent around an email saying that they are lowering flows yesterday and today. Where they will keep the river is anyones guess. But with cooler weather and no need to pulse the bear trap I am thinking they will cut our upper river down significantly for the fall.
Oh September what a glorious month it is to be on the Madison and in Montana. The first chill of fall, leaves of gold, cooler days and nights, and fish that are re-energized. If a person could only spend one week fishing the Madison each year and wanted good fishing, stable water and great views mid September would be hard to beat.
