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!

Lower Madison Flyfishing Report 8/12/14
Check back in late August/early September. Water temps are 72 degrees and rising-- not exactly primed for trouting. Sunny days mean lots of toobers and other fun on the river but for fishing look to the Yellowstone River for cold water and hungry trout.

Lower Madison Flyfishing Report 7/9/14
Warm weather, blue skies, and water temps approaching 70 degrees means the bikini hatch is in full swing on the lower maddy and fishing is going to be tough. If excellent fishing on the Yellowstone and the Upper Madison isn't enough to get you headed elsewhere, plan on early starts and early exits on the lower madison. Nymphing will be your best bet and hiking up the Beartrap will help thin out the crowds.
