Lower Madison Fishing Report
The lower is one of the best late fall/winter options around. It will fish very well especially on the warmer overcast days. Look for the buckets and deeper runs. Crayfish, sculpins, worms and eggs are the norm, with baetis and midges trailing. Streamer/swing fishing can be quite productive as well. If you get an overcast day with no wind the dry fly fishing can be good in the slow slicks.
The Month Ahead:
The lower will continue on the above mentioned program until the first long hard freeze settles in.
Long Term Fishing Forecast:
The lower is a very solid winter fishery. Just watch the weather and look for no wind. Midge fishing along with pink nymphs are a solid bet.
