Summer is officially here and with it the fishing is really heating up. Water Flows have been consistent the last couple weeks and the water is staying cool. Big nymphs and streamers are still the name of the game right now as everyone awaits the long sought after salmonfly hatch.
The last week of August is upon us and boy what an august we have had. The upper Madison River here by Ennis has fish amazingly well. We have enjoyed what some have considered the best hopper season we have seen in years. The Madison river flow today was still about 1,200 cfs and the temperature has been ranging from the mid fifties to the mid sixties.
The fishing on the upper Madison river around Ennis has been on fire. The salmon fly craze has started to die down with the majority of the hatch being above Lyons bridge. The void left by these big bugs has been replaced by a plethora of other aquatic insects. We are seeing Golden Stones, Pale Morning Duns, Yellow Sallies, Caddis and even some Green Drakes river wide.
