Madison River Fishing Report for May 24th, 2020
Dam: 1,090 cfs
Kirby: 1,380 cfs
Varney: 1,820 cfs
The Upper Madison is still fishing very well this May, and we are just getting into our Spring runoff around here. Last week we saw a steady amount of rain which brought the river up and got the creeks flowing again. However, as is commonly the case during Memorial Day weekday, colder weather and snow in the mountains seized up the flows from the West Fork of the Madison and Cabin, Beaver, and Indian Creeks. With the forecast calling for highs in the 70’s and 80’s in Cameron this coming week, expect to see the river on the rise once again, and with Hebgen Lake at 89% percent full, I wouldn’t be surprised if we start to see the flows out of the dam increased in another 7-10 days as well.
