Lower Madison Flyfishing Report 8/27/14
The cooler weather helped the water temps drop significantly in the last few days. Latest reading was 62 degrees F. Good temps for fishing and the fish should start eating more readily.  Evenings and mornings are again the best time to be out there unless you get a good overcast day. Rubber legs, streamers, crayfish and buggers in fast water is key. Dropping a smaller nymph off of these bugs is also recommended. The hopper bite has been a little slow but worth a try if nothing else is working.

Lower Madison Flyfishing Report 8/20/14
The first fall weather front is moving in this weekend so expect the toobers to head for the hills and fishing to start picking up. The fish have gotten a good rest this past month and should be ready to eat. Good cloud cover will mean good streamer action and nymphing along edges in faster water with buggers, crayfish, lightning bugs, and other attractor nymphs will prove productive. Walking up the canyon to fish quicker riffles and deeper holds will mean relative solitude and good fishing. We are still a week or so away from the river turning over into full fall shape but this window will make for some fun days!
