Fishing Report Upper Madison River 7-13-2015

Fishing Conditions

With the cooler weather and frequent almost daily showers the Madison River is still producing day in and day out. There are daily hatches of caddis, PMD, nocturnal stone, and yellow sallies. Our best fishing has still been getting up early and hitting the river till about 2 or 3. We have been doing well both with the dry dropper game as well as the bobber lobbing. The fish are in their summer spots and look for them in all the faster bouncy riffles that the Madison is famous for. We have also been having some good luck with spruce moths up at the top of the river. Our best nymphs are still in the prince family as well as webby soft hackles as well as the red san juan.
