Fishing Report Madison River for 7-21-18

Fishing Conditions

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. The streamer game still isn't in full swing but anglers chasing BIG fish are starting to have some success but with streamers its really quality over quantity. we are seeing lots of bugs out there Caddis, PMD's, Yellow Sallies, Trico's are all in the mix. We haven't had great success with hopper and ants yet but they should start any day
