Conditions : Madison River: Reports from the Upper have been phenomenal, everything has been working as of late. It also has the best conditions after yesterdays storms. Dry fly fishing with small caddis patterns, purple haze, and your larger parachute adams have been producing great fish. They're still eating Chubbies and terrestrials in the afternoons. Nymphing your attractor nymphs such as lightning bugs, copper johns, nymphicators, and rubberlegs has been working great. Streamer fishing has been even better than dry fly and nymphing. Dead drifting sculpins with a nymph trailed has been the best setup, but fish are definitely chasing your bigger streamers in Olive/Black. Some fish have started to move up from the lake, so you may find a big brownie down low or up by Slide Inn/Reynolds. Definitely worth checking out this weekend. 8-mile to town has been bumpy so be prepared to hit some rocks.

The Lower Madison has been pretty steady over the past few days, they bumped it slightly yesterday afternoon but have kept it steady since. Reports were good from yesterday, BWO's were coming off and fish were keying in on them. If you prefer nymphing, a crayfish withe a san juan worm dropped behind it were working great as well. The fish are still eating hoppers and chubbies, but the hopper bite is slowing down. We've also had some good reports of fish eating dead drifted sculpins. The key will be watching water flows and cloud cover! BWO's love warm cloudy days!
