Fishing Conditions The Upper Madison is going to be one of your better bets. dry fly fishing is probably going to be moderate but the nymphing and streamer bite should be really good. If you see any dries it should be early fall beatis but I wouldn't count of them. I would look to nymphing as being your best producer. Nymphing stoneflies, worms, sculpins, zonkers, lightning bugs and small soft hackles should be really productive. You couldn't ask for better streamer fishing conditions for it still being August. The fish should be more than will to chase big streamers being ripped around.

After a lull in the action, the recent cool weather has turned the Madison back on. Have caddis, PMD, baetis and terrestrial patterns if you’re planning a trip. A cinnamon ant can really turn the trick this time of year. Pack the streamer box along as well, those big rainbows and browns love the big meal. Double nymph rigs are the standard and will most certainly put fish in the net.
