Fishing Report for July 25th, 2010

Madison River Dam: 851 cfs Kirby: 1,010 cfs The Madison continues to fish well up high, but the water has warmed up a little bit below Varney bridge.  Caddis and PMDs have been the name of the game throughout the morning, with the hatches starting around 9:00 a.m and lasting until around noon.  When the wind has cooperated, fish have been looking up, and we've been doing well on size 16 PMD parachutes and tan X-caddis trailing sparkle pupas, Iris Caddis, soft hackle hare's ears, and PMD emergers.  If it gets a little too blustery out there, put on the [...]

Fishing Report for July 9th, 2010

Madison River Dam: 890 cfs Kirby: 1,150 cfs Those who have been waiting patiently for the Upper Madison to explode are finally reaping the fruits of their labor.  It seems like the bugs started popping in huge numbers on Wednesday, and the dry fly fishing is as good as it gets right now.  PMDs, four different kinds of  caddis, Epeorus, Salmon flies, golden stones, and yellow sallies are all making their presence known-- we've even been seeing a few green drakes and flavs in the mix.  Salmon flies and goldens have sprung in between the lakes, and are thickest between [...]
