987 CFS @ Kirby- The warmer weather we are seeing will start to turn things on up this way. Not quite floatable yet with low flows and still some ice around Ennis. Get out for a walk up around Raynolds for some action. Nymphing the seams and island rocks is where you should be focused, fish will still be in their winter holds for a bit longer.

897 CFS @ Kirby - The Upper Madison River has been fishing quite well recently. While the dry-fly action can bit hit-or-miss depending on the temperatures. With the warmer weather approaching, keep your eyes out for caddis. That being said, the nymphing has been extremely productive. We're hearing that the nymph game has been a small one, though. Keep the Rubber Legs in your box and opt for something on the tinier side. Think sizes 14 and 16 in something flashy. 

Recommended Flies:

G6 Caddis #16
Hot Belly Pheasant Tail, Pink #14
Iceberg Caddis UV Olive #16
3 Dollar Dip, Red #16
Sparkle Minnow, Black #14

976 CFS @ Kirby - The Upper Madison is fishing well at the moment. Clarity if very good at the moment. Caddis seem to be showing up in the lower stretches but overall, nymphing has still been most productive. The cooler weather this weekend could slow things up but as things warm back up, look for the Caddis to come out in bigger numbers.

Recommended Flies:

Parachute Caddis #14
Serengold #16
Sparkle Pupa #16
Delekta Worm #12
Sculpzilla #8

930 CFS @ Kirby - The Upper Madison has fished well over the past week or so. Warmer weather has made the fish a bit more active. The best option is to head upstream to the Slide-Inn area. Nymphing has been excellent and there has been good midge fishing in the slower pockets on the overcast days. There are also a few baetis starting to show up. Look for that to only get better in the coming weeks. Also, if you head that way, keep in mind that the Ennis Fishing Access is closed at the moment.

Recommended Flies:

Delekta Worm Red #12
Mega Prince #10
3-Dollar Dip #16
Sculpzilla #4
Brooks Sprout Midge #18
