The lower Madison is fishing just fine that is when it's not full of ice chunks. But if you find a day that isn't too cold(or too windy) the nymphing can be pretty consistent when dead drifting a crayfish with a midge or a sow bug underneath it. If your feeling especially dirty a worm with an egg underneath should also get the job done. Streamer fishing has become very hit or miss also keep an eye out for spawning browns on reds and give those lovebirds some space! Your best bet is to fish the deeper buckets where the non-spawning fish should be stacked up by now.

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.
