Conditions : Madison River: Upper - Hoppers are here and the bite is just going to get better and better. The dry fly fishing on the Upper Madison has been awesome this year! Hopper dropper or chubby dropper is a hard rig to beat right now. Nymphing has still been consistent with worms, stones, and smaller mayfly nymphs being the best options. With terrestrial season underway, ants are another pattern you shouldn't leave home without. Also keep an eye out for Nocturnal Stones, we are starting to see them in most areas. Your typical lighter colored Pats rubberlegs and darker bodied Chubbies are a great option for this hatch in the early mornings and evenings. 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.

Lower - The flows are down and the water temperatures are simply too hot for the trout. Along with the hot temps, this river has the tube hatch in full force and there are better options arround to fish. The window on this river is closed. If you do happen to head this way, make sure you get out early and land fish quickly.
