Madison River Beaverhead River Report Big Hole River Report

Salmonflies and More!

June 27th, 2015

The Big Bugs have moved on up and can be found from about Lyons bridge on up to the Reynolds bridge area. Down from Lyons, there are still some Salmonfly stragglers along with numerous golden stones, yellow sallies, PMDs, and tons of caddis. Dry fly fishing has begun to taper off through the middle of the day and pick up again in the evening, but the nymphing has still been consistent all day. Smaller BH nymphs like copper johns, lightning bugs in gold and silver, caddis emergers, and psycho princes in yellow have all been producing well. Streamer fishing has been good before the water warms up in the mid-day as well. Smaller bait fish profiles like zonkers in pearl, flash fry in olive, and JG sculpin are good choices to start.

With the warm weather, water temperatures are on the rise and can be fairly high in the heat of the day midafternoon, please remember to take good care of our finned friends by both releasing the quickly, and keeping them wet.

All sections are open on the Madison River! Call 800-227-7127 or stop in the shop for information on float times and walk/wade restrictions in certain sections. We hope to see you soon!
