Lower Madison River Fishing Report, April, 2019

Lower Madison stable and fishing well

Tuesday, April 23, 2019
2630 CFS @ Ennis - The Lower Madison is stable at the moment and in great shape. No caddis yet but nymphing with a bigger fly trailing a caddis pupa has been productive. If our warming trend continues, we could start to see some bugs on the surface soon, but baetis and midges are about it for now. Streamer fishing has been good as well.

The Lower Madison continues to fish well especially in the afternoons

2190 CFS @ Ennis - The Lower Madison continues to fish well especially around the Warm Springs area right now. The flows have remained pretty consistent for the last week but that could change depending on when they start releasing water from the dam. Crawfish patterns have been working great along with worms, midges, & baetis on the cloudy days!

2560 CFS @ Ennis - The Lower Madison has been fishing well as of late with nymphs & crawfish patterns. The streamer bite is starting to pick up so if tossing streamers is your thing then now is a good time to go out. Nymphs have been the productive in terms of numbers however baetis have started to come out & the fish have been keying in on them.

Lower Madison River excellent option

1910 CFS @ Ennis - The Lower Madison has been fishing great lately with afternoons fishing best. A few baetis are starting to show up on the cloudy days. Nymphing with a bigger stonefly or crawfish pattern with a smaller trailing midge or mayfly has been most productive. Fishing should only get better as things warm up!
