This week we have seen some warmer weather here in Ennis. The Madison river remains clear of ice and access is still pretty manageable. Some boat ramps are clear right now but this could change with weather
A couple of day ago I piled into a fishing rig with friends Bill and Aj . We were heading out to do some winter fishing on the upper Madison. Winter fishing can bring on its own set of problems and as we neared our destination the snow started to fall with more frequency and the thermometer read 19 degrees.
