Conditions : Madison River: Upper - The dry fly and nymph fishing is worth the drive. The caddis, PMD's, and salmon flies are all out up to ruby campground. There are a few goldens down low, but they are mostly nymphs. The best way to fish the river right now is to use a lot of variety. There are tons of different types of caddis out so make sure to switch up patterns until you find the right one. Salmon flies are the same way, make sure to switch up the pattern until you find the right one. A good go to rig right now would be a small chubby with a Lil' Spanker dropped off the back. Another good dry fly to try would be a rusty spinner. Prince nymphs and hares ears have been doing well too. Streamers in black and white have also been productive. The water level has dropped so it is beginning to get a little boney for a hard side boat. You may want to start wading here if you don't have an inflatable. The far upper river and from 8 Mile down to the lake are perfect places for this and both happen to be fishing good.
