Madison River Fishing Report for March 23rd, 2022
Dam: 565 cfs
Kirby: 643 cfs
Varney: 673 cfs
And….we’re back. We took a little hiatus from the Upper Madison this Winter in order to give the fish a break from the Hebgen Dam catastrophe that happened last Fall, but we have been hitting the river consistently over the last several weeks and fishing has been very good. It’s going to be a little boney with regard to river flows this Spring, as our snowpack in the Madison range is currently sitting at 80% and Hebgen is only 68% full. Our guess is that NW Energy will hold flows out of Hebgen Dam to around 550-650 cfs until runoff begins in mid to late May. Until then all we can do is cross our fingers for a lot more moisture in the forecast in order to make up for another mild winter.
