Winter on the Madison is really a very special time of year. Yes, it can be very cold but that's why we love Merino Wool and Gore-Tex!

Most of the action for the next few months will be concentrated on wade fishing on the Upper Madison above the West Fork and the Lower Madison in the Bear Trap Canyon below Ennis Dam. You can find some wonderful winter solitude and some great fishing pretty consistently throughout the winter if you are a hardy angler. Fishing to Trout rising to midges is usually Plan A, but finesse nymphing with your standard small stuff will work most other times.

As always, please feel free to give us a call or stop in with questions. 

This is a public service announcement: We have some amazing deals on fly lines, fly rods, reels, clothing and more. Free shipping above $50. You can also make smaller purchases and select "In-Store Pick Up" if you want to swing by on your way through town.
