Madison River Fishing Report 4-20-18

Fishing Conditions

It looks like we are going to have some great weather this weekend on the Madison river. The river is still running clear and is fishing pretty well. Wade anglers have been having success around Valley Garden and the Three Dollar Bridge area. Nymphing and dead drifting small streamers seem to be the most productive but there has been some dry fly action on the upper river above the Lyons Bridge area.
