The Madison River is still in remarkable shape for being the center of runoff. People are catching fish river wide if you play the right game. Current flows are 1710 at Kirby and 2540 at Cameron. All fishable. We will see if the current 70's weather throws more mud into the river. It is expected one more push of mud and big water. For the record no salmon flies yet. A call we have been getting at the store daily. Expect them in Ennis around the 24 of the month.
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.
