For the Madison River, same as on the Henry’s Fork: expect best action during early in the day spinner falls and evening caddis activity. Terrestrial patterns along well vegetated banks will be you best bet during day time. If you fish below the wade only section, whether you are wading or from a boat, expect interruptions from other boating anglers having accents or lingo from all corners of the world.
NOTICE: As of May 15, 2017, all anglers fishing in Montana must purchase an Aquatic Invasive Species Prevention Pass in addition to standard Fishing and Conservation Licenses. These passes will be available from all Montana License Agents as well as Montana FWP. Cost is $2 for residents and $15 for nonresidents.
These passes are available at Jimmy’s.
