The Madison River has been fishing pretty well. we are seeing some really nice fish coming up for dry flies. Anglers fishing small Chubbies with a dropper rigs have reported big fish up eating them.
The upper Madison river has been fishing great this week. Little chubbies and nymphs have been the hot rig this week. With water temps on the rise the afternoons have started to get a little slow but the morning and evening fishing has really made up for the slower afternoons. For those who like to fish all day deeper nymph rigs in the afternoon have produced some nice big fish.
The fishing on the upper Madison river around Ennis has been on fire. The salmon fly craze has started to die down with the majority of the hatch being above Lyons bridge. The void left by these big bugs has been replaced by a plethora of other aquatic insects. We are seeing Golden Stones, Pale Morning Duns, Yellow Sallies, Caddis and even some Green Drakes river wide.
