Ennis Lake Fishing Report 4-4-2015

Ennis Lake Fishing Report 4-4-2015

Fishing Conditions

The Ice is officially off Ennis Lake, and has been for quite some time now.  There is still the challenge of navigating the lake with the giant islands emerging in the center and the lower water levels.  If your brave enough to skirt a jet boat over the low spots or row a raft or drift boat, you will be rewarded with some fiesty rainbows and huge browns near the inlets.  They are hitting flashy streamers, try kreelex in silver or gold, or a white zonker. Remember to be very cautious of the redds, as the fish are using the entire inlet to do their thing!

Also, remember your fishing boundaries (what is lake and what is river) as the section of the river above the inlet is off limits at this time of year.   No worries though, the lake if stacked with plenty of fish!!!

Fishing Report Upper Madison River 4-4-2015

The Madison River Keeps producing day in and day out.  There are lots of rainbows in the river right now and fishing is really good.  Mostly a nymphing game with some dry fly in the afternoon.
