Madison River Dam: 1,180 cfs Kirby: 2,040 cfs Varney: 3,280 cfs Down she goes....Not that the Upper Madison is running low by any means, but it's definitely a whole lot lower than we thought we'd be seeing this time of year.  PPL has been stepping down the outflow from Hebgen this week and we are now running a full 1,000 cfs less at the Kirby gauge then we saw just five days ago.  Despite the change in water levels, the fishing continues to be incredible throughout the wade section.  We are running at roughly 10-12" of visibility above the West [...]
