Conditions : Madison River: Fishing on the upper has been consistently inconsistent, some days are terrific others are not. Fishing around Ennis and Valley Garden has been sporadic with some good streamer fishing and some good dry action. Depending on the temperature and amount of sun fish are moving in and out of Ennis Lake. Bwo's, midges and tricos have all been out with the cooler weather. Around Ennis fishing smaller mayfly imitations, emergers and cripples are going to be a good bet when fish start to look up. Around the lower sections people have been successful with streamers on the cloudier days. Late evening at nightfall there have been some spinner falls. We have had several reports of large mega princes being the saving grace of the day, so try some crayfish patterns along with mega princes. If you are going to fish this river mid day, do not ignore the middle of the river. With cooler temperatures and rain as of late, the fish are moving a bit more during the day. High sun in the afternoons have the fish feeding more on sub surface bugs, so nymphing deeper water can be a good bet. Fishing these times can be hit or miss but can get some of the larger fish moving for those streamer junkies out there. Hitting boulders with streamers has been producing fish when the mid day fishing is slow. With the water being low, cloudy days are going to provide the best fishing while hot and sunny days are going to slow things down. When floating this river be ready to get drifts down into the fast pockets, and be prepared to walk and scrape the bottom of your boat. From eight mile down the river is wide and shallow, pushing your boat over the shallows will be necessary. If this is the case, park your boat upstream and wade fish the water below to avoid spooking fish, and really concentrate on the pockets. A lot of the time where you want to be fishing is also the best place to get your boat downstream so be prepared to be constantly planning your boat's route and fishing locations. We have had some reports of big brown trout making their way out of Hegben Lake into the upper regions of the Madison
