The Madison River along with other rivers in the Montana are all very high right now. In fact some are getting to flood stage. With the amount of snow we have in the mountains the current levels are sure to rise even more. Currently on the Madison River we are sitting at 3560 CFS at Varney Bridge.
Well it has happened. We knew the 80 degree days would catch up with us eventually. It has.
The continued spring like weather brings great fishing to the Madison River. The fish are happy and the water is cold so it is a good time to be a fisherman in Montana. Nymphing will keep the rod bent most of the day. Standard spring fare of stone flies, worms, BWO nymphs and eggs will keep you into fish.
