Madison River Fishing Report for April 30th, 2019
Dam: 1,790 cfs
Kirby: 1,850 cfs
Varney: 2,130 cfs
Fishing on the Upper Madison has been solid lately despite the cold snap and brutally frigid winds that came in over the weekend and lasted through Monday night. Obviously you want to keep an eye on the forecast these days if you plan on floating, as 25-30 mph north winds are not anybody’s idea of a good time. The good news is that you can usually find a little shelter in the upper wade stretches as well as between the lakes if wind is an issue. From the looks of things we are going to start warming up a little bit around here on Thursday, with highs in the fifties and sixties expected through the weekend. All the ramps are good to go in the float section with the exception of Ennis, but it shouldn’t be more than another week or two.
