Conditions : Madison River: Upper - The flows have been dropping ever soo slowly and the water temps have dropped to around 60. The Baetis have started to hatch, Loop wings and Bat wings are two good patterns to be fishing. A number of fish are hiding in some suprizingly small water. The streamer bite has been great in the mornings as well and on and off throughout the day. The Valley Gardens area has had a very good streamer bite. The big thing with the streamers is finding the water the fish are holding in. Once some pattern recognition occures, streamer fishing can be hot. Of course, a nymph rig is still always a good option on the upper in those bigger buckets and faster runs. A bigger bugger, zurdle bug, or pats rubber legs is a great point. Behind that a small caddis pupa, small green or red copper john, prince nymph, or pheasant tail will pick up some fish. Dropping down to smaller midge patterns midday has been effective as well. This river is a fantastic option for more consistant action throughout the day. Down toward ennis lake look for some calibaetis and some rusty spinners if the wind keeps down.
