Upper Madison Fishing Report for August 6, 2018

Upper Madison Fishing Report 8/9/2018

Aug, 09 2018

The Upper Madison continues to fish great. Flows are currently at 1,450 cfs and riding steady. Multiple hatches are occuring throughout the day and terrestrials are falling into the water as well. Try drifting a hopper along the banks or matching the hatches of Mayflies, Caddis or Spruce Moth's. Have some Rusty Spinners and crippled/ emerger Caddis to feed the picky rising fish in the evening. Going deep with Serendipities, Lightning bugs and Poxyback Stones should get some fish subsurface. If you're after streamer fishing, sculpins or articulated olive colored bugs have been productive durring low light conditions.
