LET US HELP!

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 Report for the Madison River in Montana 1/19/2019

Fishing this time of year on the Madison River is a game of degrees. If the degrees are to low you might as well spend the day cleaning the garage to save time in the spring. The El Nino we have been seeing has produced a winter full of days with degrees above the threshold.
