Madison River Fishing Report for August 16th, 2022
Dam: 1,050 cfs
Kirby: 1,170 cfs
Varney: 1,330 cfs
Fishing has improved a little since our last report but it has still been fairly inconsistent this week. Early morning streamer fishing and terrestrial fishing between noon and 2:00 pm have been the only consistent ways of getting quality fish in the boat, although some days the nymph bite has been good enough to save the day as well. With the mercury still rising into the high 80’s and 90’s it has been difficult on all fronts after 3:30 – 4:00 p.m., so you best bet is still to get your fishing in during the morning and early afternoon hours and then head back out later in the evening.
