Fishing Report for April 23rd, 2015

Madison River Dam: 654 cfs Kirby: 903 cfs Varney: 1,100 cfs JUST A REMINDER THAT THE UPPER MADISON BETWEEN QUAKE LAKE AND MCATEE BRIDGE AS WELL AS FROM ENNIS BRIDGE TO ENNIS LAKE IS CLOSED TO ALL FISHING UNTIL MAY 16TH. Fishing on the Upper Madison has been good this week, and it should only get better with the overcast skies and rain in the forecast through Sunday.  The streamer fishing below Varney seemed to have slowed down last week, partly due to bright skies, low water, and lots of pressure; however, the creeks are pumping another 300 cfs down [...]

Fishing Report for April 15th, 2015

Madison River Dam: 622 cfs Kirby: 741 cfs Varney: 906 cfs JUST A REMINDER THAT THE UPPER MADISON BETWEEN QUAKE LAKE AND MCATEE BRIDGE AS WELL AS FROM ENNIS BRIDGE TO ENNIS LAKE IS CLOSED TO ALL FISHING UNTIL MAY 16TH.   The Upper Madison continues to fish very between Mac and Ennis, as well as between the lakes.  It has definitely been a little windy out there, but that hasn't seemed to affect the nymph or streamer bite too much.  There have been some great hatches of BWO's on the cloudy days below Varney, and a lot of good [...]

Fishing Report for April 7th, 2015

The Upper Madison is still fishing very well with nymphs from McAtee down to Ennis Bridge as well as between the lakes.  On a quick Varney to 8 Mile over the weekend, we started with an Oregon cheese nuke egg trailing a Galloup BWO nymph in size 18 and never took it off.  Although there wasn't much in the [...]

Not much has changed on the Upper Madison since the last report with the exception of a little more in the way of BWO activity around Varney.  It's not full blown yet but with a few adults starting to show themselves the bulk of the hatch should start to get going any day now.  Nymphing continues to be your [...]
