Lower Madison River Fishing Report Very Good
The Lower is a great option in the early spring. The wind can blow pretty good on some days, but when it isn't too windy and the weather is good trout can be
caught. Stick to one or two deeper slow water runs. Egg patterns and small bead heads or midge larva are a good bet. A crayfish or stonefly nymph is also
worth a try. Wade fishing is more productive than floating unless you are simply using the boat as a taxi down the river to jump from one winter run to another.
The best fishing will be between 11am and 5 pm and when you are sitting on a productive run, the catching can be very good at times. This is one of the best
fisheries around in the early spring.

Madison River, Between Quake Lake and Ennis Description
The Upper Madison is know as the "Fifty Mile Rifle".
It has some of the most classic trout water in the country and many
anglers from all over the country have called it their favorite for years.
With lots of Rainbow and Brown Trout and good fishing with nymphs, dries,
and streamers, the Madison is a near perfect trout stream.
