Lower Madison River Fishing Report, May, 2020

Madison still fishing well

Tuesday, May 26, 2020
2310 CFS @ Ennis - The Lower Madison continues to pump out caddis, yellow sallies and a few golden stones. While dry fly fishing has been sparse during mid-day, nymphing a crayfish pattern with a dropper has been productive. Dry fly fishing definitely picks up in the evenings or on cloudy days. Flows have remained stable for now.

Lower Madison still great option

2700 CFS @ Ennis Lake - The Lower Madison has a little color in it but is still a great option. There are still plenty of caddis as well as yellow sallies and a few golden stones. Dry fly fishing has still been good late afternoons into the evening and nymphing throughout the day has been productive.

2,100 CFS @ Ennis Lake - The Lower Madison is a little off color but there are still fishing opportunities to be had. The dry fly fishing has cooled off a bit due to the river conditions but nymphing with a larger stonefly or crayfish pattern along the banks has been working well. Now would also be a good time to try a streamer or sculpin pattern.

Lower Continues to be Great

1890 CFS@Ennis-The Lower Madison has been the best option the past week with the Mother's Day Caddis hatch arriving on time! Caddis fishing has been best in the evenings once the light becomes low. Fishing throughout the day has been good with Zirdles, Crayfish and soft hackles as well. Try a dry fly with an emerger a couple of feet behind it.
