Fishing Report for April 23rd, 2015

Madison River Dam: 654 cfs Kirby: 903 cfs Varney: 1,100 cfs JUST A REMINDER THAT THE UPPER MADISON BETWEEN QUAKE LAKE AND MCATEE BRIDGE AS WELL AS FROM ENNIS BRIDGE TO ENNIS LAKE IS CLOSED TO ALL FISHING UNTIL MAY 16TH. Fishing on the Upper Madison has been good this week, and it should only get better with the overcast skies and rain in the forecast through Sunday.  The streamer fishing below Varney seemed to have slowed down last week, partly due to bright skies, low water, and lots of pressure; however, the creeks are pumping another 300 cfs down [...]

Fishing Report for April 15th, 2015

Madison River Dam: 622 cfs Kirby: 741 cfs Varney: 906 cfs JUST A REMINDER THAT THE UPPER MADISON BETWEEN QUAKE LAKE AND MCATEE BRIDGE AS WELL AS FROM ENNIS BRIDGE TO ENNIS LAKE IS CLOSED TO ALL FISHING UNTIL MAY 16TH.   The Upper Madison continues to fish very between Mac and Ennis, as well as between the lakes.  It has definitely been a little windy out there, but that hasn't seemed to affect the nymph or streamer bite too much.  There have been some great hatches of BWO's on the cloudy days below Varney, and a lot of good [...]

Fishing Report for April 7th, 2015

Madison River Dam: 671 cfs Kirby: 780 cfs Varney: 921 cfs JUST A REMINDER THAT THE UPPER MADISON BETWEEN QUAKE LAKE AND MCATEE BRIDGE AS WELL AS FROM ENNIS BRIDGE TO ENNIS LAKE IS CLOSED TO ALL FISHING UNTIL MAY 16TH. The Upper Madison is still fishing very well with nymphs from McAtee down to Ennis Bridge as well as between the lakes.  On a quick Varney to 8 Mile over the weekend, we started with an Oregon cheese nuke egg trailing a Galloup BWO nymph in size 18 and never took it off.  Although there wasn't much in the [...]

Fishing Report for April 1st, 2015

Madison River Dam: 680 cfs Kirby: 770 cfs Varney: 953 cfs JUST A REMINDER THAT THE UPPER MADISON BETWEEN QUAKE LAKE AND MCATEE BRIDGE AS WELL AS FROM ENNIS BRIDGE TO ENNIS LAKE IS CLOSED TO ALL FISHING UNTIL MAY 16TH. Not much has changed on the Upper Madison since the last report with the exception of a little more in the way of BWO activity around Varney.  It's not full blown yet but with a few adults starting to show themselves the bulk of the hatch should start to get going any day now.  Nymphing continues to be your [...]

Fishing Report for March 25th, 2015

Madison River Dam: 663 cfs Kirby: 741 cfs Varney: 906 cfs JUST A REMINDER THAT THE UPPER MADISON BETWEEN QUAKE LAKE AND MCATEE BRIDGE AS WELL AS FROM ENNIS BRIDGE TO ENNIS LAKE IS CLOSED TO ALL FISHING UNTIL MAY 16TH. It's been a nice change of pace to wake up to fresh snow on the ground the last couple mornings, but it's looking like we'll have some warmer weather moving back in tomorrow through the weekend.  We've been getting a lot of calls recently asking about the status of the road down to the inlet of Quake as well [...]

Fishing Report for March 9th, 2015

Madison River Dam: 804 cfs Kirby: 850 cfs Varney: 984 cfs Just a reminder that the Upper Madison between Quake Lake and McAtee Bridge as well as from Ennis Bridge to Ennis Lake is closed to all fishing until May 16th. It's looking like another week filled with Spring temperatures and very tolerable winds.  The Madison between the lakes is fishing well with nymphs and we are starting to see more rainbows creeping into the system with each passing day.  It's still not crazy yet in terms of numbers of fish and people alike, but it should start to really [...]

Fishing Report for February 24th, 2015

Madison River Dam: 841 cfs Kirby: 860 cfs Well we knew the 40-50 degree highs in February couldn't last forever, and it looks like old man Winter has finally settled back in to this little corner of the world.  As a reminder, the Upper Madison between Quake Lake and McAtee Bridge and Ennis Bridge to Ennis Lake closes to all fishing starting on March 1st, so Saturday will be your last chance to fish these stretches until the general opener on May 16th.  Despite the cold weather, fishing has been very good throughout the Upper River and nymphs such as [...]

Fishing Report for February 11th, 2015

Madison River Dam: 921 cfs Kirby: 959 cfs It's been more of the same on the Upper Madison this week, with unseasonably high temperatures making for very pleasant fishing conditions.  The nymph bite is still holding steady with midge larva and pupa imitations such as zebras and #18 $3 Dips doing the most damage.  Smaller Pat's Rubber Legs in black have been good choices throughout the Upper River in addition to Iron and Tungsten Sallies in #16 as well.  The dry fly fishing has continued to hold its own between 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. when the wind holds off [...]

Fishing Report for January 26th, 2015

Madison River Dam: 974 cfs Kirby: 1,030 cfs The sub-par dry fly fishing that we described in our last report has improved with leaps and bounds over the last week, and fish have been eating midges like a champ when the wind hasn't been ripping them off the water.  Stillborn midges, Goober midges, Griffith's Gnats, and Black or Gray CDC midges have all been taking good fish in the slower moving slicks and edges of the Upper Madison, and the majority of the hatch has been taking place been between 11:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m..  The nymph bite is still [...]

Fishing Report for January 14th, 2015

Madison River Dam:  963 cfs Kirby: 1,020 cfs The Upper Madison continues to fish very well with nymphs, but so far the dry fly fishing has been a little slower than we've seen over the last couple of years.  One reason for the lack of heads can be summed up in a word: Wind.  While the forecast is calling for strong gusts through Friday night there is a little light at the end of the tunnel, as some much needed cloud cover and snow is expected to envelop the Madison valley over the weekend.  There have also been less hatches [...]
