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

High Water on the Madison

Things are big out there and right on the edge of being dangerous.   Those who love to float rivers should take heed that the Madison River is running really high and it is extremely dangerous to float.   Its a true bummer that the scheduled flush of the Madison occurs during the first big weekend of summer.   Both fisherman, recreational boaters and fly shop owners are hurting the lack of good floating opportunities.   The ones that are out there require some skill.

Fishing High Water Might Just Change Your Life

This is an interesting year for fly fishing. Most of the golden triangle of hallowed rivers in Montana, Idaho and Wyoming has seen tremendous snow pack. This translates to epic high water during the runoff period. Unfortunately the runoff has come late and some of the high water will interfere with historically good fishing weeks across the west. While you week long trip to the promise land might not be what you expect there are options to get into fish during this time. It might make you just love high water and change your fishing life.

Madison River Fishing Report 5-14-18

The Madison River has dropped some and started to clear up after the colder temperature we had this weekend. The river here by Ennis is still off color but its starting to get a little green tint to it.  Fishing big black streamers close to the banks could be a great great for thee next couple of day with the water leveling out. The water above the west fork has started to drop also and the fishing has been lights out above Lyons bridge.
