Upper Madison River Fishing Report, June, 2018

Salmonflies starting on the Upper Madison

Friday, June 22, 2018
2760 CFS @ Kirby - We've had some pretty good reports of Salmonflies on the Upper Madison just starting upstream of the town of Ennis. The fish have been looking for them tight along the banks as the river is still high and a little off color. Look for this hatch to move upstream over the next few days.

Changing conditions

6/21/2018 2870 CFS@Kirby- The Upper Madison has come up a bit with our recent rain. Salmon flies seem ready to pop any day. Fishing big nymphs near the banks has been productive. Streamer fishing is still a great option with the cool water temps and higher flows. With the weather warming up have the big dry flies ready.

Upper Madison clear and fishing great

1470 CFS @ Kirby - The Upper Madison has cleared significantly and is fishing great at the moment. The river is still high and moving fast but that has pushed the fish closer to the banks. Nymphing has been outstanding with big flies against the banks. No Salmonflies yet but they should not be too far off.

Upper Madison dropping and fishing well

2250 CFS @ Kirby - The Upper Madison has continued to drop and is starting to clean up. The river is still high but certainly fishable as the color has improved dramatically. Fishing big flies tight to the banks will be most productive. As the river continues to drop, the fishing should only keep improving. Watch for low bridges.
