Lower Madison River Fishing Report, April, 2018

Lower Madison still fishing well

Tuesday, April 24, 2018
2200 CFS @ Ennis - The Lower Madison has a bit of color in it but the flows are still great and have been stable for the past few days. The warmer weather this week may bring out caddis big time as there have been just a few seen low down on the river. Nymphing has been good overall, especially in the deeper pockets.

1830 CFS@Ennis - The Lower has a bit of color to it recently even with the falling flows. Try a crawfish or a worm up top with a Baetis or a midge trailed behind. Dark colored streamers could move some bigger fish as well. Dry fly opportunities may present themselves in the afternoon based on the weather. Be prepared with BWO's and Midges.

2110 CFS @ Ennis - Spring fishing is in full effect and the Lower Madison remains one of our best options for fishing right now. It has a little color in it but solid nymphing as well as good hatches of midges and baetis that have made for some great fishing days. As always, non-windy overcast days are best if you can find them.

1710 CFS @ Ennis - Reports on the Lower have been consistent. Nymphing has continued to be a good option, especially Crayfish and worms trailed with eggs or zebra midges. There has been a few positive reports regarding dark streamers. With the wind and changing weather, fishing dries has been difficult; but watch for rising fish on calm days.
