More seasonal weather means good winter fishing on the Madison River.  Lots of great reports river wide.  Bobber lobbers are still king this time of year but some epic  winter.  dry fly fishing to midge hatches are right around the corner.  

Fishing Report Upper Madison River 2-1-2016

More seasonal weather has produced some good winter fishing on the Madison River.  The river is in good shape with not much gourging.  The gourging that has happened is mostly in the channels section below Valley Garden.  If you stay above that the water should be open with just the occasional shelf ice.

Making the Most of your First Fly Fishing Trip to Montana

Each year thousands of people make the trek from each and every state and other countries for their first fishing trip to Montana. They have been lured by numerous magazine articles, blog posts, tales and stories from the in the know crowd and they depart for Montana ready to land two foot trout and pay a pilgrimage to the holy water. 

Wednesday Wanderings and other Muddy River fishing Ideas.

Looking ahead to the remainder of the week. The guessers are saying that we will get back into the 60 and lower 70 for a few days before the next little disturbance comes in over the weekend. Be aware they are saying just light rain and cooler. Sound familiar? Expect to see the main Madison get back into somewhat fishable state if they are right. Pretty typical spring weather for us.
