Lower Madison Fishing Report 6/26/2020

Date: 06/26/2020

Current Conditions

The lower Madison has still been fishing great. Nymphing remains an excellent option when fish are not rising. It hasn't been too hard to find fish rising to caddis, PMDs or Yellow Sallies. In the evenings we have found a decent number of brown drakes flying around and they have been eating large mayfly dries. Putting a nymph below it will greatly increase hookups. Try crayfish patterns, Yellow Sally nymphs, caddis pupa and Lightning Bugs subsurface for the best overall success.

Keep in mind you can shop all of our flies in our online store for both shipping and curbside pickup. You can also order hand-picked fly selections for the lower Madison River before you head out and we'll have them ready for you to pick up!

Lower Madison Overview

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.
