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.
Remember the reason for the long weekend. We appreciate those that gave the ultimate sacrifice so that we can go fishing. Right now the Madison River at Varney Bridge is 1920 CFS and at Kirby it is 1490CFS. These flows are almost perfect. The river is that happy shade of bugger green everyone is looking for just in time for the weekend.
The weather has finally started to get better. The final grasp of winter has given way to more spring like conditions here in Ennis. The Madison river is still running clear and the fish are getting more active. We are still seeing midges and on cloudy warm days the blue wings have started to fly around. The fish still aren't keying into dries but they should start with this warmer weather.
