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.

Madison River Fishing Report for August 6th, 2022

Dam: 1,290 cfs

Kirby: 1,430 cfs

Varney: 1,640 cfs

Its been a tough bite on the Upper Madison this week.  There have been periods of good dry fly fishing, streamer fishing, and nymph fishing but it has been all over the place for the most part.  Early mornings have been the most consistent with streamers and nocturnal stones, but afternoons have been fairly unproductive due to warm water temperatures and plenty of wind.  Also worth noting is that the section between 8 Mile Ford and Ennis Lake is on Hoot Owl Restrictions as of August 2nd, meaning that it is closed to fishing between 2:00 pm and midnight.  The entire river upstream from 8 Mile is still fishable all day. The rain and colder temperatures over the two days have certainly helped, as the streamer bite yesterday and today was fantastic, and we should start to see fishing improve here again shortly.
