Steady as she goes.  The Upper Madison is still fishing extremely well both on and below the surface, and we still have Salmonflies and Golden Stones flying between Pine Butte and Raynolds if you are looking to get in on the tail end of some big bug action (You can also find them between the lake right now as well).  Otherwise there are plenty of  caddis, PMDs, Epeorus, and Yellow Sallies to keep fish looking up below the West Fork, and the dry fly action has been incredible over the last week.   With water temperatures starting to creep into the high sixties in the mid-afternoon hours, mornings and evenings have been the best for fishing dries; however, the afternoon nymph bite has definitely made up for it.  Streamer fishing has been good to excellent in the mornings, but seems to be dying around 8:30-9:00 a.m..
