Lower Madison River Fishing Report, June, 2018

Lower Madison fishing great

Friday, June 22, 2018
4240 CFS @ Ennis - The Lower Madison continues to fish well but is still at higher flows. Fish are really looking for crayfish patterns in the weed bed pockets. In addition, there are plenty of PMDs and Yellow Sallies to make the fishing really good. There continues to be good caddis hatches in the evenings as well.

Fish to be caught

6/21/2018 4040 CFS @Ennis- The flows bumped up with the recent precipitation but the fishing has still been productive. With more water coming down the river the fish will be finding the slower water and hugging the moss banks tell the water comes back down. Larger nymphs with caddis pupa trailers have been pulling in fish.

2670 CFS @ Ennis - The Lower Madison is in excellent shape right now and fishing very well. The river has continued to drop over the past few days and is in prime shape. The fish seem to be really looking for crayfish patterns but there are plenty of PMDs and Yellow Sallies out as well. Weedbed pockets and deeper runs are most productive.

3930 CFS @ Ennis - The Lower Madison has been coming down and clearing up a bit more each day. Fishing has steadily picked up as well with crayfish and bright colored bead nymphs. The river is still a little high for wading but in great shape for floating. Fish seem to be holding in the seedbeds and deeper runs.

Lower Madison is Big but Fishable

5070 CFS@Ennis-The Lower Madison river has dropped about a 1000 CFS over the past couple of days, while the river is still quite high and big it is about our only option among the local rivers. Nymphing a large streamer followed with a beadhead dropper will be the best option at these flows. Make sure to have plenty of split shot and long leaders.
