Upper Madison Fishing Report 11/16/2020

Date: 11/16/2020

Current Conditions

The upper Madison has been nymphing well recently. The fish seem to be eating a lot of different patterns but seem to be turning to the smaller stuff like midges, $3 dips, and micro mays. If that doesn't seem to be working I would try a worm or a rubberlegs. Streamer fishing could be productive with like an olive and white barely legal but I wouldn't waste too much of your time unless you get some action(always worth a shot though). Tread lightly and carefully in the shallower water and let those spawners do their business!

Upper Madison Overview

The upper Madison River is perhaps the most famous and highly regarded wild trout stream in the Western US. The river is formed in Yellowstone National Park at the confluence of the Gibbon and Firehole rivers, just outside of West Yellowstone, Montana. As the upper Madison River leaves Yellowstone National Park, it flows into Hebgen Lake and then works its way north through the Hebgen Dam and then Quake Lake. The stretch of river between Quake Lake and Ennis, Montana is known as the “50 Mile Riffle” and is typically the portion of the Madison River that people refer to as the "Upper Madison."
