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

Memorial Day Weekend Madison River Fishing Report

Remember the reason for the long weekend.  We appreciate those that gave the ultimate sacrifice so that we can go fishing.  Right now the Madison River at Varney Bridge is 1920 CFS and at Kirby it is 1490CFS.   These flows are almost perfect. The river is that happy shade of bugger green everyone is looking for just in time for the weekend.
