The Lower has been fishing really well this last week. BWO's are starting to pop more and more and today looks like a great day for some dry fly fishing. Make sure to have a good variety of patterns to imitate the various stages of BWOs. Check out Teagans blogs on BWO nymphs, emergers, and dries. Nymphing has been really productive with Scuds/sowbugs, San Juan worms, Crayfish, BWO nymphs, Midges, and smaller Perdigons in black. Today would be a good day to throw a streamer around as well. I would fish a JJ Special, Black Dungeon, or a Laser Legal.

The lower Madison River is considered to be the Madison River from below Ennis Lake, downstream to the headwaters of the Missouri River. This section of the Madison flows through the Beartrap Wilderness Area in a narrow gorge characterized by some serious whitewater and difficult access. Once the river leaves the Beartrap Canyon, the river dramatically changes character, becoming wider with a seemingly gentle flow all the way to Three Forks, where it joins the Jefferson River and Gallatin River to form the Missouri River.
