Lower Madison River Fishing Report, July, 2017
Tuesday, July 18, 2017
1270 CFS @ Ennis - The warm days have caught up with the Lower Madison as it has been getting a little too warm to fish in the afternoons. Floaters and inner tubers have also pretty much taken over and to keep the fish healthy, it's not a great option until the water cools off later in the summer or early fall.

1830 CFS@Ennis-The Lower Madison is starting to warm up and it's probably best to give it a break for a while. Right now the only hatch is the summer inner-tube hatch! It was a great spring on the Lower and we will back on it when it cools down.

2210 CFS @ Ennis - The Lower Madison continues to be a great option. Nymphing crayfish with small beads has been most productive throughout the day and strong evening caddis hatches have made for great evening dry fly fishing. Yellow Sallies and a few PMDs will also be seen during the day. The river has been busy mid day.
