Fishing Conditions

September 22, 2022

The fishing on the Upper Madison has been in transition from summer fishing to fall fishing. On the colder days, you will find BWO's, midges and caddis are your best options. However I wouldn't put those terrestrials away just yet, we have 80 degree weather in the forecast for next week, those should still be a great option for the warmer afternoons as we haven't had enough freezes to really shut them off completely, especially if used as an indicator fly. As we transition into full fall fishing, the swing & streamer game will just be getting better each day! A few of our favorite fall streamers on the upper include Dungeons, Sparkle Minnows and Double Screamers!
