Lower Madison Fishing Report 9/14/2021

Date: 09/14/2021

Current Conditions

The lower Madison has still been fishing great. Hoppers have still been picking up fish in the afternoons. Not quite as well as last week but still a ton of fun can be had fishing a dry and a dropper. A pink or flesh hopper in a size 10-12 seems to be what they are looking for. Be mindful that the fish have been holding in very different locations depending on the day so don't be afraid to cast in the shallow weedy shelves in the middle. If you want to add a dropper I would stick to Spanish bullets and perdigons(The Black and red Spanish perdigon in a size 16 has been my favorite lately). Streamer fishing has been good with JJ Specials and Woolly Buggers in the a.m. If you do end up nymphing try dead drifting a light-bodied crayfish with a perdigon below it.

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.
