Fishing Report for the Madison River in Montana 6-24-2019

Salmon flies are almost here and any day could be the day. We are thinking the full hatch will begin on the 25 or 26.  We should have some good dry fly fishing shortly after that.  The big bugs are about to join the party.  The river is in great shape and flows are 1830 at Varney and 1180 at Kirby.

Fishing Report for the Madison River in Montana 6-12-2019

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.
