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

Madison River Fishing Report 8-19-18

The terrestrial fishing on the Upper Madison near Ennis has been the best we have seen in years. The water temperatures have been ranging between from the mid fifties to the mid sixties. While the river flows have been hovering around 1,260 CFS which is a little bit higher than norm for this time of year. These two factors may be what has lead to this great fishing.

Fishing Report Madison River for 7-21-18

The upper Madison river has been fishing great this week. Little chubbies and nymphs have been the hot rig this week. With water temps on the rise the afternoons have started to get a little slow but the morning and evening fishing has really made up for the slower afternoons. For those who like to fish all day deeper nymph rigs in the afternoon have produced some nice big fish.
