The upper has been dropping slowly and will continue to throughout the weekend. Expect to see a slight rise come next week with warmer temperatures. $3 bridge and between the lakes will be the best options for this week. Anything down from the West Fork will be dirty, the best flies for that stretch will be Black Pat's Rubberlegs, large worms, Streamers, Lightning Bugs, and Sculpins.

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."
