Fishing Report for the Madison River in Montana 9-7-2018

Indian summer is here.   While it might be september the fish are still in summer mode.   Lots of dry fly action river wide.   Remember that the mornings are still a little chilly and the best fishing has been starting around 10:30 and extending to about 5.  It takes that long for the river to warm up a few degrees and get the fish moving for the day.

Why September Fly Fishing in Montana Should be 1 of the 7 Deadly Sins

God I hope heaven looks like Montana in September. A prayer I say often and truly believe. Montana comes into its own in September and shows her best self. It has forgot the cold and snow of last winter, the refreshing rains of spring have brought life to the landscape and it has marinated in the summer sun to produce a perfect golden product. The rivers are veins of life flowing through a dramatic landscape. The September Montana I know is as close to perfect as one can imagine.
