November In Trout Country

Well today is the first day of November and Main street has a lot more trucks pulling  horse trailers and side by side then it does drift boats. As I sit here and eat what’s left of the Halloween candy I can’t help but wonder what now. November can be a hard month for the trout angler. It seems too early to hang up the waders and hibernate next to the fire. But on the cold days afield you can’t help but feel like someone at a party that has over stayed their welcome. November still has some fishing to offer and with most of the outdoor force looking to fill their freezers one can find plenty of solitude on the water. The key to fishing in November is planning.

Madison River Montana Fly Fishing Report for October 18, 2018

Fishing on the Madison River in Montana continues to impress.  Fall is in full swing, fish are being caught on streamers, nymphs and some dries. The real challenge is timing the water temps. We had a considerable cold snap which has lowered the water temps.  Look for temps in the upper 40's to low 50's.  

Madison River Montana Fishing Report for October 2, 2018

Fall has arrived big time in the Madison River Valley and the fish can not be happier. The fishing has stayed strong with the cooling waters and changing leaves. The lake run fish from Ennis Lake have started to show on the fall migration to spawn in the cold Madison waters.  Lots of streamer activity river wide.  Most of the big game is sub surface with streamers and nymphs.  We like the sculpin stuff on a slow drift.   The pure nymph guys are still getting some fish to eat with the prince stuff and the BWO nymphs.
