The Madison River is fishing good right now. The biggest challenge to catching fish is the weather and the famous spring Madison Wind. You should see hatches of BWO’s each and every afternoon and the fish have taken notice. They are on the nymphs earlier then look for heads in the calmer water behind rocks, the inside bends and slicks. The bobber lobbers will still do well with nymphs in the morning and evening and even during the hatch. Typical Madison stuff like rubber leg stone fly nymphs, eggs and techy mayfly nymphs will keep you bent. Flows continue to be stable and water temps are getting right to the sweet spot. If your floating it is a bit boney and expect to trade some paint with a few rocks. The powers that be at the dam are holding a bit of water this spring and keeping the river a bit low. Our opinion this is good conservative thinking as we might need every drop come summer.
