June has arrived and the promise of a new summer is here. While officially summer does not start until June 21 with the summer solstice. Here in the cultural epicenter of trout for Montana, summer is well underway.
Remember the reason for the long weekend. We appreciate those that gave the ultimate sacrifice so that we can go fishing. Right now the Madison River at Varney Bridge is 1920 CFS and at Kirby it is 1490CFS. These flows are almost perfect. The river is that happy shade of bugger green everyone is looking for just in time for the weekend.
This cool weather is a blessing if your around to fish the Madison River right now. The flows have gone down and the water color is that great bugger green that everyone loves. This is a small window for fishing and expect flows to come back up once the warm weather hits again. Until then take advantage of some darn good fishing.
