Fishing has been getting better on the Madison River this week. It is still a weather dependent thing. Get a good day and the fishing is great. Old man winter shows up and it is slow. The water temps are starting to rise and the fish are getting hungry.
we are starting to see less snowmobile trailers and more boat and raft trailers here in Ennis this week. winter has finally given up some and the Madison river has started to open up some. Anglers have been floating Lyons to McAtee and some have even floated Varney to Eight mile. The fishing is still kinda slow but Anglers are having success out there.
We are finally starting to see some blue skies here in Ennis. With this nicer weather Anglers are bitting at the bit to get out of the house and wet a fly. The past couple of weeks were pretty tough on the Madison River. With record cold temps the river froze up and gorged through town. However there are still places to fish if you want to get out. your best bet right now will be below Ennis lake or above Lyons Bridge. Reynolds pass has been fishing well for the folks willing to wade through some snow to get to the river.
