The lower has picked up once again. Nymphing has been hot. Crayfish, baetis nymphs, and scuds have been fishing well. Hopper fishing has been surprisingly good the last couple days. Hopper dropper rigs are getting them once the sun is nice and high. For streamers a Nancy P or a black Mini Dungeon.

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.
