Madison River Fishing Report for March 24th, 2017

Dam: 1,290 cfs

Kirby: 1,350 cfs

Varney: 1,550 cfs

Madison River fishing report.  As most of you know, we had two weeks of unseasonably warm temperatures in the region in addition to several days of rain, which muddied up many of the creeks and rivers at lower elevations.  The good news is that the forecast is calling for cooler nights and highs in the forties through next week, which should slow the melt down considerably from what we saw earlier in the month. Flows out of the dam were raised another 100 cfs yesterday morning, putting us at roughly 1,350 cfs above the West Fork and 1,550 cfs at Varney, which is pretty much perfect for wade and float anglers alike.

Madison River Fishing Report for March 13th, 2017

Dam: 1,150 cfs

Kirby: 1,180 cfs

Varney: 1,370 cfs

Madison River fishing report.  Not much has changed on the Upper Madison over the last month, and fish are still eating nymphs and dry flies very well throughout the Upper River.  As you can see from the river gauges, the flow out of Hebgen was increased  by 300 cfs last week, and we are currently running at just under 1,200 cfs at the Kirby gauge for the time being.  While much of the low level snow has started to melt from the Slide area down to Ennis, the vast majority of our snow pack is still sitting pretty above Hebgen and they are taking the reservoir down in order to make room for an above average runoff coming out of Yellowstone National Park.  The forecast this week is calling for highs in the mid forties to low fifties, so it’s definitely starting to feel a little more like Spring around here, but our guess is that we still haven’t seen the last of Old Man Winter quite yet.
