Upper Madison is on the Rise

Thursday, May 25, 2017
3610 CFS@Cameron-The Upper Madison has risen quite a bit the past couple of days and fishing could be tough for the next few days. The Upper had been fishing well as the river was somewhat higher but still green in color which makes for great nymphing or streamer fishing. This recent rise in flows could make for tougher fishing, be careful floating

Upper Madison Clearing for Now

Monday, May 22, 2017
2030 CFS@Kirby-The Upper Madison has cleared up quite a bit the past couple of days and the flows have been dropping every day. Warmer temps later this week will likely cause another spike in water flows.. For now fishing has been good, try a stonefly nymph and soft hackle for best results and also streamer fishing which has been quite productive

Upper Madison still an option for fishing

Wednesday, May 10, 2017
1990 CFS @ Kirby - Despite the dirty water below the west fork, the Upper Madison has still been producing some nice fish for those who get out. Fishing tight to the banks with girdle bugs and worm droppers worked well yesterday. A few fish were seen rising once the caddis came off. Above the west fork, the river is still in great shape.

1980 CFS@Cameron-The Upper Madison has risen in flow and the water has turned off color the past couple of days with the warmer weather and runoff conditions. Lots of creeks and tributaries like Cabin Creek and the West Fork are dumping muddy water into the river. Above the West Fork you might could find some fishable water for the next few days.

Upper Madison great shape

Friday, May 5, 2017
1610 CFS @ Kirby - The Upper Madison is still in great shape and fishing well. March Browns, BWOs and just a few Caddis have been making for some great dry fly fishing. Nymphing and streamer fishing has also been very productive. Caddis should start showing up in bigger numbers with the best fishing being in the evenings.
