Madison (Lower)

Rating - Fair   

Thursday, Aug 15 2019
Fishing has been decent, but the water temps are getting dangerously warm so the best time to be out there is in the morning. Dry fly fishing has been good with PMDs and caddis, while nymphing has been good using crayfish or San Juan worms above smaller pheasant tails, hares ears, killer caddis, gunslingers, or lightning bugs. Streamer fishing has been tough.
