Fishing Report for January 26th, 2015

Madison River Dam: 974 cfs Kirby: 1,030 cfs The sub-par dry fly fishing that we described in our last report has improved with leaps and bounds over the last week, and fish have been eating midges like a champ when the wind hasn't been ripping them off the water.  Stillborn midges, Goober midges, Griffith's Gnats, and Black or Gray CDC midges have all been taking good fish in the slower moving slicks and edges of the Upper Madison, and the majority of the hatch has been taking place been between 11:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m..  The nymph bite is still [...]

Fishing Report for January 2nd, 2015

Madison River Dam: 996 cfs Kirby: 1,090 cfs After a very intense cold front over the Holidays, temperatures are climbing to more tolerable levels and fishing has been good on the Upper River.  Midges, Pat's Rubber Legs, Olive Hare's Ears in #18-20, and #18 $3 Dips are still the way to go under the indicator and we are starting to see more adult midges popping every day.  The wind situation hasn't helped the dry fly fishing, but we should really start to get going soon with the warmer temps heading our way next week.  The river is still a little [...]
