Fishing Report Updated October 15, 2022

This Madison River fishing report is valid from October 15 through October.

On the Lower Madison, bright sun has meant nymphing the deepest buckets has worked best. BWO nymphs, crayfish, and San Juan Worms are good choices. Limited hatches are occurring, but cloud cover and cooler weather is necessary to make these hatches strong. Modest-sized Woolly Buggers and the like may move a few larger fish early and late in the day, but again gray skies are needed for really good streamer fishing.

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