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

Summer is almost over but the fishing on the Madison river isn't. We are starting to see some bigger browns getting more active. The river as a whole has been fishing about the same through out the sections. The fish are still eating terrestrials on top but the bigger fish seem to be eating more subsurface presentations. Streamers and nymph have fooled some really nice fish into the net this week.
Fishing on the Madison river hasn't changed a whole lot since last week. Hoppers and ants are still your best bet for dry fly action. the nymph fishing is still doing quite well and streamer fishing with olive and white sculpin patterns are starting to be pretty productive as well.
All the great happenings on the Madison River in Ennis Montana.
Some big fish are being caught right now on the Madison river. The river temperatures are starting out at about 59 degrees in the morning due to the cooler night time air temperatures and the flows are about average for this time of year. Morning fishing is still your best option but some anglers are seeing success throughout the whole day.
