1,230 CFS @ Kirby - It's hard to beat the Upper Madison if you're looking to spend a day of fishing. If you get there early I'd recommend throwing a small streamer or sculpin before the sun heats up the river. When afternoon hits switch to your hopper-dropper setup as this has been deadly as of late. Once evenings rolls around use a caddis or midge

1,210 CFS @ Kirby - The Upper Madison river is one of the better fishing options right now. Nymphing has been great in the morning with mayfly nymphs, caddis pupas, and midges. Once afternoon hits switch to your hopper dropper setup. Pink or tan hoppers in sizes 10 and 12 have been the ticket. Once evening comes caddis have been best.

1,430 CFS @ Kirby - The Upper Madison River is hard to beat right now. The dry fly action, nymphing, & streamer bite are all great. Hoppers are everywhere and the fish have an appetite for them. A great combo would be a hopper or chubby chernobyl on top trailed by a caddis pupa or mayfly nymph. Once late afternoon/evening hits, switch to a caddis.

1,400 CFS @ Kirby - The Upper Madison river is one of the better options to spend a day of fishing right now. We're seeing PMD and caddis hatches throughout the day with the prime time being between 4 and 8 PM. During the heat of the day try a hopper pattern or a chubby chernobyl as your lead fly with a caddis pupa or mayfly nymph as the dropper.
