UPPER MADISON FISHING REPORT
Fishing on the Madison River has been consistent
Below average snowfall in the Madison drainage so far this winter has our snow pack at 73%. Fishing on the Madison River has been consistent . If you like to catch fish this is the place to hit a home run. The water around Raynolds Pass Bridge is getting a work out with people fishing there almost every day, so have a plan B to fall back on. Expect to see lot’s of Midge activity and trout eating on the surface on most days. The nymph fishing is even better, using all the regular Midge patterns, attractor patterns , and small rubber leg stone fly patterns.
So if you are on a ski trip and need your Fly Fishing FIX we can make it happen, just pick up the phone and call Wild Trout Outfitters and we will do what we do best (PUT PEOPLE ON FISH). Don’t forget to pinch your barbs down and practice catch and release, just love them and leave them in the river.
YELLOWSTONE RIVER FISHING REPORT
The Yellowstone river will come into play when winter starts to turn into spring.
Below average snowfall in the Upper Yellowstone drainage so far this winter has our snow pack at 93%. If you’re going to Float fish the Yellowstone River please be careful and make sure the boat ramps and the river is passable in between . The down side to the float trip is once you shove off , you are committed to fish the stretch, even if you are cold. The river’s start to get shade by 4 o’clock or sooner (depending on the float) right now so the full day float option is not for everyone.
