2013 Madison River fishing

October 8, 2013
The Madison fished well in 2013  and we experienced both increases in size and number of fish over last several years.  Browns continue to dominate below Varney Bridge and we caught 3 over 20" wading above and below the property.  One guest caught a 23" brown in front of the house during the fall spawning run.  Rainbows continue their comeback and the expected completion of Hebgen Dam repairs in 2014 should return more consistent temperature conditions that favor their comeback.

The upper Madison is primarily a float fishing stream, but the lower Madison near Ennis channels and is imminently wadeable with consistent flows with great holding water and prolific hatches.  Hope to see you in 2014!!

Tight lines!!
