Fishing the Madison in December can be tough but also rewarding .
The brown trout fishing on the Madison river has really started to turn on. We are seeing more and more browns in the net as they start their spawning process. as the spawn continues we will see more fish move out of the lakes and start their journey up river. Valley garden will be one of the best places for wade anglers to have a chance at one of these "run up" fish and floating anglers should concentrate there time from Varney bridge to Ennis lake.
The raining cold weather finally broke and the Madison river is starting to fish really well. We are starting to see some run up fish from the lake and the browns all throughout the river are starting to get active. Nymphing and streamer fishing will be your best bet for catching these fall browns that the Madison is notorious for.
