Madison River Fishing Report

April 16, 2019

Winter is over…tomorrow. Still cold and snowy here in Ennis today. Those days are done for starting tomorrow and we’re a bit relieved to say the least. Looking up into the mountains and you can rest assured that 100% snowpack has been achieved. 124% to be exact. 

Fishing has been great. The ice has receeded rapidly near town. All of the boat ramps except for Town and Valley Garden are open. It might be a little while until those two are accessible. FWP still has to get some heavy machinery in there to clean them up. 

The girdle bug and worm have been the hot patterns lately. More and more reports of streamer eaters are coming in everyday as water temperatures begin to rise. BWO hatches are steady up around the Big Bend. Still some skwallas being sited closer to town. 

We’re just happy to be wearing less clothing! Like I said, the fishing is great right now. That’s all there is to say really.
