Fishing Report for September 30th, 2013

Madison River Dam: 740 cfs Kirby: 809 cfs Varney: 891 cfs "Wind" has been the word of the day for just over a week now on the Upper Madison, and pretty much throughout the entire region as far as we can tell.  Sustained 20-30 mph days with gusts between 40-50 mph have kept both bugs and anglers off the water, but the few people that have been out there have had it all to themselves.  And so it is that we enter the time of extremes...on the one hand you can go out there and have a great day nymphing [...]

Fishing Report for September 23rd, 2013

Madison River Dam: 749 cfs Kirby: 799 cfs Varney: 875 cfs Fishing continues to improve on the Upper Madison and I think it is pretty safe to say that Fall has officially made its presence known in this little corner of the world.  We are seeing good numbers of Pseudos and even a few larger BWOs when the wind hasn't been ripping them off the water, and we should start to see more in the way of fish actually podding up on them over the next week or so.  Streamer fishing has been great most mornings, but the 20-30 mph [...]

Fishing Report for September 12th, 2013

Madison River Dam: 749 cfs Kirby: 799 cfs Varney: 845 cfs With colder nights and thus colder water temperatures, things have been picking up on the river this week.  While nymphs are still the way to go if you are looking for numbers, we've been having better reports of dry fly fishing over the last few days.  That's not to say that you can go out there and rip 50 fish on hoppers right now, nor has it been a great hopper year in general, but the ant and attractor bite has been bringing more than a few good fish [...]

Fishing Report for September 5th, 2013

Madison River Dam: 804 cfs Kirby: 903 cfs Varney: 1,000 cfs The Upper Madison continues to fish well with nymphs, but the dry fly bite is still a little too inconsistent to really excited about-- We have been taking some nice fish on hoppers and ants in the wade section, but there are a lot more lookers than takers on the hopper front. While we are still seeing good fish eating nocturnal stones below Lyon's Bridge, the action has started to slow down a bit more over the last few days and my guess is that most of them will be [...]
