Lower Madison Fishing Report

Wednesday, June 19, 2019
3,180 CFS @ bl Ennis - The Lower has continued to fish well, despite being high and a bit off color. Keep an eye out for rising fish - as Caddis, PMD's, and Yellow Sallies have all been spotted. Nymphing has also been productive with a crayfish imitation or worm trailed by a small, flashy nymph.

The Lower Madison has dropped and the fishing is picking back up

2,750 CFS @ bl Ennis Lake - Flows have dropped below 3,000 over the past few days and the Lower Madison is coming back into shape. Throughout the day nymphing will be the best with crawfish patterns and mayfly nymphs. Keep an eye out for caddis hatches in the mornings and evenings & now is a great time of the year to bring out the streamer rod!

The Lower Madison is big & muddy but fish are still being caught with nymphs

4,320 CFS @ bl Ennis - Flows on the Lower Madison have raised quite a bit in the past week & the water clarity resembles that. If you head this way to fish expect big and muddy water. However that doesn't mean it's un-fishable. I would stick to bigger nymphs like a rubber legs with plenty of weight along with darker colored streamers.

The Lower Madison is one of the better options in the area right now

3,100 CFS @ bl Ennis Lake - The Lower Madison is one of the better options in the area right now. If your goal is to catch fish on dry flies then there's no need to get out there first thing. A few hours before dark has been the prime time. Nymphing the buckets & weed beds with crawfish patterns or soft hackles has been a great setup for all day.
