Lower Madison Fishing Report 1/9/2019

Jan, 09 2019

The Lower Madison is a great choice for a local option. The temperatures are starting to rise a little and the days are getting a little longer. The Trout seem to be enjoying it. Nymphing has been the most reliable alot of days. Top choices include a Rainbow Czech, Scud, Sow Bug or Worm, trailed by your favorite Midge Pupa in red or black. A few people are finding some good dry fly fishing at times of light to moderate wind. It doesn't sound like the fish are ultra picky if they are willing to rise. Midge clusters, single adult midges, even small Purple Hazes or Parachute Adams have been picking up fish if they are rising. Anywhere from Ennis Dam to Greycliff has been good the last few days. Above Black's Ford has been a little more consistent than below lately but you never know until you try.
