Lower Madison Fishing Report 11/09/2017

Nov, 09 2017

Fishing was pretty good yesterday now that fish seem to be adjusted to cold water. Fish are stacked up in the slower, deeper holes, and nymphing is going to be the name of the game. Make sure to set the hook on any bump of the strike indicator, as hits can be very subtle in winter. Try a crayfish or worm trailed by small midges or pink sowbug/scud patterns, and make sure to get a good dead drift to keep the flies on the bottom. Any dry fly action is going to be with midges, and streamers will need to be slow stripped or swung down deep.
