Fishing Report for May 29th, 2010

Madison River Hebgen Dam: 671 cfs Kirby: 1050 cfs Any fear of water shortages has been laid to rest, as the Madison River drainage finally reached its 100% average today...and were not done yet.  For more information on snow pack/ moisture content throughout the state click here. Its been a wet couple of weeks, but the fishing has only got better.  We have been seeing good numbers of midges and BWOs in the early afternoons, as well as March Browns thrown into the mix, and fish have been taking advantage of their presence.  Nymphing is still the way to go [...]

Fishing Report for May 18th, 2010
