Conditions : Madison River: Upper - The Upper Madison river has been fishing great this last week with the consistent flows and warmer weather. Down lower, fish your big stones, big caddis pupa, and streamers. Keep an eye out for caddis popping throughout the day and into the evening. An olive elk hair caddis will get the job done for the rising fish. Up high, clarity is still holding relatively strong. Nymphing has been the most consistent producer with worms, stones, and smaller mayfly nymphs being the best producers. There are also some caddis up this way so keep an eye on the soft water and you may be rewarded with some great dry fly fishing. Keep an eye on this river, Hebgen lake is full, they are going to have to dump water soon. Be mindful when wading certain sections of the river, even though we are before the flush, the river is still higher than usual. I would expect an even larger bump sometime in the next week or so. ** The bridge constuction at Varney access began on March 29th and will run through December 2019. Text Varney to 22828 for construction alerts. ** Varney will be taken out this week. They will be leaving a small hole that you can sneak a boat through. The access point will still be open for put in and take out.

Lower - With the resurgence of summer weather, the caddis are back and ready for action. The fish have been feeding on the dries more so in the evenings, but along the banks there is action with a small Chubby or a March Brown throughout the day. The nymph and streamer fishing has been good too. The crayfish bite has picked up with fish holding over the weed beds. Look for fish in the shallow water where transitions between the buckets are. If you're not picking fish up in the shallows add a bit of weight and begin to dredge the buckets throughout the beds. Make sure to cast above the bucket and allow the crayfish to fall in with a natural dead drift. Fish are also hanging on the banks looking for march brown nymphs, caddis pupas and crayfish.
