Water Condition
Water Temperature  

Conditions : Madison River: Lower - Water temps have plummeted on the Lower Madison all the way down to 42 degress. This will slow the fishing down for a little bit. Watch out for the wind out here, it's a little tough to cast if it begins to gust. If this is the case, try using a water loaded cast. Most of the floating moss has cleared up, however you will still encounter moss on the river bottom. Dry fly action has been consistent so long as the wind doesn't pick up. Cloudy days have baetis hatching and the fish looking up. Nymphing has been good with crayfish, caddis pupas, mayfly imitations and worms. Streamer fishing has been picking up nicely, olive has been the hot color as of late. Try a slower retrieve with the occasional jig or twitch.

Upper - Baetis hatches have been sporadic with the inconsistent weather. Nymphing has been the most consistent with worms, stones, and smaller flashy mayfly nymphs being the best option. There has been great action on streamers and the fish are chasing. Work those sculpin colors hard or white during the brighter days. The Cameron Flats section is the one area fishing tough at times. Be mindful when wading certain sections of the river, even at low flows, this is a difficult one to maneuver. ** The bridge construction at Varney access began on March 29th and will run through December 2019. Text Varney to 22828 for construction alerts. ** Varney bridge is no more. 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.
