Fishing Report for September 24th, 2014

Madison River Dam: 1,020 cfs Kirby: 1,140 cfs Varney: 1,300 cfs After a week of marginal fishing, the Upper Madison is back on track and fishing well.  Streamers and nymphs have been productive both on and off the banks, but the dry fly bite has been the most inconsistent as of late.  Olive, black, and brown streamers have been working well early and late, and will continue to produce when the cloud cover holds.  However, streamers in solid white and other white color combinations have been the way to go when the sun is out.  If stripping big flies isn't [...]

Fishing Report for September 2nd, 2014

Madison River Dam: 974 cfs Kirby: 1,180 cfs Varney: 1,320 cfs Clarity Update:  Cabin and Beaver Creeks have been putting a fair amount of mud into Quake Lake with the recent rains.  That mud plug made it through the outlet last night and we are now at about 2.5 feet of green visibility above the West Fork.
