Caddis on the Lower Madison!

Wednesday, April 26, 2017
1790 CFS @ Ennis - Caddis have arrived on the Lower Madison although with mixed results so far. The weather has played a major factor, but when the sun peaks through, the bugs have started to get active. We have not had the clouds of caddis yet, but probably soon to come. Baetis and March Browns have also been getting some fish to the surface.

Eggs and worms on the Lower Madison very productive

1770 CFS @ Ennis - The Lower Madison has good clarity and is fishing well. Egg, worm and crayfish patterns have been best when nymphing and on the non-windy overcast days, there have been just enough baetis and midges to get some fish to the surface. Warm weather will bring caddis soon but we are not there yet.

Lower is a Little Dirty

1510 CFS@Ennis-The Lower Madison has turned off color the past couple of days most likely due to high winds on Ennis Lake which can churn up quite a bit of sediment. If the wind can calm down for a few days the color should return to more normal conditions. We have heard of some fish being caught out there mainly on large nymphs and a dropper.
