Conditions : Madison River: Lower - Caddis have popped on the Lower Madison! Our head guide Gary was out there today (Saturday the 22nd) and let us know that there were a ton of caddis hatching and fish were eating dries consistently! If they'd just stop messing with the flows it would be bonkers! Look for Sunday to have better fishing than today. Weather reports for Sunday look perfect for BWO hatches. Soft hackles are begginning to become a must have fly in the box. If the wind isn't an issue you can find adults on the water in mid to late afternoon. If you're bringing your nymph rod make sure you have some crawfish, worms and BWO nymphs or emergers. Definately have a few caddis nymph patterns as well as adults.

Upper - (4/20) The first couple hours can be a little slow until the day begins to warm. Afternoons have been very good as the Baetis hatches have started. You will see more adults on the water on the cloudier days. It won't be that much longer before we have a caddis hatch. The water temps are getting very close. The upper sections of the river have a better bite going for the streamers. The fish are preferring a slower action rather than fast, even a dead drift. Most Rainbows have Finished spawning but we all need to keep from walking through their redds for a while.
