Lower Madison Fishing Report 1/2/2018

Jan, 02 2018

The Lower Madison should be very fishable later this week. With warmer temps coming, the slush and ice should clear up nicely. The water around Beartrap will usually be the first to clear up. Pink, Rainbow and Grey Scuds / Sow Bugs paired with a Red or Black Midge Pupa are normaly a pretty sure bet to catch your first fish of the New Year. Be sure to use an extra split shot and stay in the slower, deeper water and around the weed beds. Eggs, Worms and Crawdads will have moments of glory as well.
