The Madison River continues to fish well thanks to some cooler days and a few showers. This has kept the water temps in the safe range and the fish active. It has been busy out on the Upper Madison with some of the other rivers like the Big Hole and Lower Madison on Hoot Owl. These restrictions are just lifted so we should start to see things a little quiet. The Yellowstone has also been pumping mud frequently so we have been seeing our share of Yellowstone guides making the trip. The cooler weather has been a god send and has breathed new life into the river and probably saved us. The powers that be at the dam have reduced flows this last week some so it is starting to get a little tight in spots. We have been having luck with drys in the morning hours concentrating on the nocturnal stones as well as the caddis spruce moths up high. The bobber lobbers are throwing a variety of stuff and the old bunny and a bead has started its yearly dominance. We have been finding our best fishing from sun up till about 2. Get up early and go fishing, in the afternoon sit in the shade and eat ice cream.
