The salmon fly’s are out in force and now is the time to fish the Madison River.
The River has dropped considerably and now it is getting to look a lot like mid summer levels. It is getting boney and the fish have moved off the banks and are concentrated in their summer spots. Deep green water with some chop is money. The salmon fly’s are out and about on the river and good hatches are reported as far upstream as Storey Ditch. The fish are looking at them in a big way. Our best dry fly’s have been low riders that sit in the film. We have also been having luck with PMD and caddis trailers. Now is the time to fish the Madison River as the big bugs are out and the fishing is good.
