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

During this season of flux on the Madison River when the river looks more like bad fly shop coffee than a pristine blue ribbon stream anglers struggle to find the answer. With all the rain we have been having the edges of the river are water logged and the worms that live below start to move.
The Upper Madison River is running about 2680 CFS at Varney Bridge right now. This is getting into the big stage so be really careful navigating especially around the lower bridges on the Upper Madison River. If you need to get out and catch a fish stay either really high in the $3 Bridge area and above or try fishing the lower.
The Madison River is in a state of flux right now. Is it summer, spring or somewhere in between. Are we doing the run off thing or are we going to more reasonable flows. The answer to all of these questions depends on the day. It is that temporary right now.
