Madison River fishing report.  We are in the early stages of runoff on the Upper Madison, and as water levels continue to rise with each passing week you can rest assured that we are in store for a big water year.  Most of the creeks are still running clear below Quake with the exception of Indian and the West Fork, but all it takes is one good rain storm and we will start to see the mud coming in full force.  The section between Quake and Lyon’s Bridge is still holding at 3.5′-4′ of viz with a slight green tinge, but both Cabin and Beaver Creeks were throwing in a decent amount of chocolate milk over the weekend so we should start to see visibility decrease later this week.  The West Fork is also putting in a small brown stripe that is pretty evenly mixed by Windy Point.  Once you get below Windy you can expect roughly  2.5′-3′ of visibility for the time being, but my guess is that it will start to get closer to 1.5′-2” by the end of the week.

Madison River fishing report.  It’s been a while since we had a normal Spring in the Madison Valley, as random weeks of rain and highs in the sixties have been far too common for March and early April in years past.  We had been fishing ice out at Quake and Hebgen for almost two weeks at this time last year, but colder temps and high elevation snow have kept the melt at a very slow pace…which is a good thing by the way.  As of today, the snow pack in the Madison Range is sitting pretty with a moisture content of 123%, with even higher amounts in the surrounding watersheds, so it should be a great water year throughout the Western part of the state.
