Madison River - June 10th, 2011
  • Recorded:
  • Partly cloudy
  • 55 ° F 
  • Fishing: Fair
Upper Madison near West Yellowstone is giving up a pretty consistent number of fish right now. There is a lot of water pumping through the channel but it has forced most of the fish into lies right on the bank. Doing the dirty short leash with a bugger and a worm with some lead and a 1' bobber right off the grass has been the best way to conjure up some action. Inside the park the water is clearing more and more every day and hopefully we will have consistent PMD, BWO, and Caddis action in this next week. The lower river below Ennis is still  raging and two shades of brown. It's hovering right around 5,000 cfs.

Wow!  Finally some summer like weather around here!  Upper 70s, sun, very very nice.  Making for some tough conditions on the spring creeks however.  Got to find those fish in the creeks in the deep pools and be patient on your nymphing game....

Wow!  Now this is summer-like.... too bad it's not going to last.  Rest of the week looks crappy!  20 degrees cooler and rain.  Ugh.  River's going to get really big though in a hurry.

Since Saturday, it's been the best 3 days of weather we've had all spring and early summer combined.  Finally, sunny and almost 80!  Winds have behaved as well.  Talk about nice.  What's it done for the river?  She's getting big!  Yeehaw!  Going to see 20 grand possibly later today or tomorrow.  Bad news, it's supposed to turn rainy and nasty the rest of the week.
 
Madison River - June 3rd, 2011
  • Recorded:
  • Partly cloudy
  • 68 ° F 
  • Fishing: Good
Clarity on the Upper, upper has greatly improved over the past couple days as it's been definitely cooler out and Cabing Creek, Beaver Creek are not throwing as much junk in at all.  West Fork still the main culprit but it seems to have abated as well.  The walk section is in really good shape right now.  The float area below the West Fork is coming on as well.  Both areas it's nymphing san juans, rubberleg stones in conjunction with smaller caddis and mayfly beadheads behind.  Streamers are good choices as well if you just don't want to watch the indicators...
