High Water on the Madison

Things are big out there and right on the edge of being dangerous.   Those who love to float rivers should take heed that the Madison River is running really high and it is extremely dangerous to float.   Its a true bummer that the scheduled flush of the Madison occurs during the first big weekend of summer.   Both fisherman, recreational boaters and fly shop owners are hurting the lack of good floating opportunities.   The ones that are out there require some skill.

Fishing High Water Might Just Change Your Life

This is an interesting year for fly fishing. Most of the golden triangle of hallowed rivers in Montana, Idaho and Wyoming has seen tremendous snow pack. This translates to epic high water during the runoff period. Unfortunately the runoff has come late and some of the high water will interfere with historically good fishing weeks across the west. While you week long trip to the promise land might not be what you expect there are options to get into fish during this time. It might make you just love high water and change your fishing life.
