The Madison in Yellowstone National Park is now closed so your focus should be on the float/wade section below Quake Lake as well as the section between Quake and Hebgen lakes. There have been some reports of Quake lake fish starting to enter the river. Nymphing with flashy nymphs such as Biot Stoneflies, hotwire Princes, Psycho Mays and a San Juan has been the nymph rig of choice lately. Streamers have also been very productive for larger browns and rainbows. Some of our favorites have been bright colored streamers such as Sculpzilla yellow and white, CH minnow and Mike's Matuka in olive or tan, and Black Rubberbugger.

The Upper Madison will be frigid for most of this week, but when the weather climbs back into the 30s and the wind isn't too fierce, we should expect some midges to be hatching. Eggs, worms, and midge larvae should be in your box as we descend into winter. If you have the courage to make it out on a sunny day, you can have some prime runs to yourself.
