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.
So when is spring going to arrive and the fishing get good on the Madison River in Montana? That is anyones guess right now. The weather man is calling for the next 10 days of cold. Hopefully after that things change and we can start breaking up. Spring officially starts in like 18 days so lets put our hope that Old Man Winter can read the calendar.
Fishing this time of year on the Madison River is a game of degrees. If the degrees are to low you might as well spend the day cleaning the garage to save time in the spring. The El Nino we have been seeing has produced a winter full of days with degrees above the threshold.
