Fishing Report Updated October 31, 2023

This Madison River fishing report is valid from November 1 through November 20 or so.

Lower Madison: A good option due to the fairly warm water. Look for BWO and midge hatches after lunch. Before lunch, or if you just want to try for a monster rather than numbers, strip streamers. You can also fish crayfish and the like under an indicator. Avoid shallow gravel to protect spawning brown trout.

Upper Madison: No recent reports. Check with shops in Ennis or West Yellowstone.
