Upper Madison Fishing Report for December 10, 2017

Upper Madison Fishing Report 12/10/2017

Dec, 10 2017

The Upper Madison has been a little slow from Ennis to the Lake but gradually gets better the closer you get to Hebgen and Quake Lakes. A couple of programs can yeild some Trout. Some days they want a smaller combo like a Scud or Sow Bug and a Midge Pupa, other days something bigger like a San Juan Worm and a Stonefly Nymph will work fine. Flies such as small Copper Johns and Brassies can work well up there too. The water temps don't change as much the higher you get so the fish can be a little more spread out than in other rivers now. In addition, some Winter days around Reynolds and $3 Bridge have given me the best dry fly fishing of the year. The Midge hatches can come out of the blue, no matter how cold, windy, sunny or snowy it might get. These fish can be real selective durring a hatch so be ready with a good assortment of single Emergers and Adults as well as a few Clusters. Size and color can make a difference so have a few in several colors sizes from black, red, olive and purple, sizes 16-20. 

Fins & Feathers is a full service fly-shop that offers many different guided fishing trip option on many of the local rivers including the Upper Madison.
