Upper Madison River Fishing Report, June, 2019

The Upper Madison is up & off-color but the fishing remains good

Wednesday, June 19, 2019
1650 CFS @ Kirby - The Upper Madison has been fishing well despite higher flows and slightly off-color water. As of late, the mornings have been a little slower than the afternoons and evenings. Nymphing on the wade section has been very productive & the streamer bite has also been very good. Salmon flies are right around the corner!

The Upper Madison is fishing great & one of the better options right now

1,710 CFS @ Kirby - The Upper Madison has had consistent flows over the past few days & is one of the better fishing options in the area right now. With Hebgen being full expect flows to increase with water being released very soon. Nymphing has been producing fish, caddis have been popping throughout the day, & the streamer bite is picking up!

Clarity on the Upper isn't great but fishing & clarity improves farther upstream

2050 CFS @ Kirby - The Upper Madison is up in flows compared to what the average is for this time of year. There is color in the water around Ennis but the farther upstream you go the clarity improves. Heavy nymph rigs will be your best bet while streamers have been pulling numbers as well. Keep an eye out for hatches when conditions are right.

1920 CFS @ Kirby - The Upper Madison continues to fish great throughout the day. There is a little color in the water but the clarity gets better the farther up you go. Nymphing has been the best & most consistent method of getting into fish recently. Bigger stones & rubber legs have been working great with the water having a little color in it.
