Fishing Report for October 22nd, 2010

Madison River Dam: 776 cfs Kirby: 850 cfs Fishing has been pretty good on the Upper Madison this week, and it should only get better as cloudy skies and winter snows descend upon the valley starting tomorrow.  With the bright sun and sixty degree temperatures this week, nymphs and streamers have been taking some really nice fish between 8:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m., but again the bite seems to be slowing down for most of the afternoon, and picking back up around 5:30 until sundown.  This should all start to change here very soon, meaning that you'd be better off [...]

Fishing Report for October 16th, 2010

Madison River Dam: 813 cfs Kirby: 882 cfs We had a great week of fishing on the ol' Upper Madison this week, and very few people around to share it with.  Both Raynold's and Three dollar have been very productive from a catching standpoint on all three fronts-- Nymphs, Dries, and Streamers.  Nymphing continues to be option numero uno if you're looking for numbers, and the bite seems to peaking from around 9:00 a.m.  to 2:00 p.m. when the sun is out and more like 10:00 to 4:00 on the colder, overcast days.  Size 20 Hare's ears and PT's, midges, [...]

Fishing Report for October 8th, 2010

Madison River Dam:  832 cfs Kirby: 882 cfs Well it took a little longer than we anticipated, but it is safe to say that Fall is finally here, and all the good things that come with it.  The blue wings have been out in force when the clouds have moved in, and we've had some great dry fly fishing in the wade section from late morning until around 3:00 in the afternoon.  Nymphs are still the way to go early on though-- size 20 BWO nymphs and emergers as well as midge larva and pupa have been good to downright [...]

Fishing Report for October 3rd, 2010

Madison River Dam:804 cfs Kirby: 860 cfs The near record temperatures and sunny skies have provided some very pleasant weather for anglers throughout the state over the last week, but fishing has been pretty day-to-day on the Upper Madison.  The float section has definitely been the most inconsistent...one day they're eating streamers and small attractors like a champ, and the next day you'd swear you're not on the same river.  Its anybody's guess when it will turn on again, but we have colder temperatures and cloudy skies in the forecast all next week, so tomorrow looks like as good a [...]
