Fishing Conditions It is that time of year where the Upper Madison starts to get more technical because of all the pressure it sees. Dry fly fishing has been pretty good on small PMD's and small caddis in black and tan. Nymphing has been better than dries on small PMD nymphs, caddis puppa and small flashy nymphs with sculpin and zonkers mixed in.

The Madison has been fishing very well. There have been great caddis hatches in the morning and evening hours just before dark. There are several species of caddis ranging from as large as a size 14 down to tiny size 20 micro caddis. The upper section below Quake Lake has also been producing some good Pale Morning Dun and Flav mayfly action. The river is low making wading a little easier but the fish spookier.
