Ruby River Fishing Report
The Ruby is a nice option in early spring. The smaller valley doesn’t produce as strong of winds as the Madison and the dam protects the waters a bit from ice shelves. Nymphing can be pretty good most days and you will often be surprised to find some rising trout over midge hatches. Slow stripping dark streamers can also produce.
The Month Ahead:
As we move into spring the Ruby can produce some good midge and baetis fishing, providing a good dry fly option early in the season.
Long Term Fishing Forecast:
The Ruby should continue to fish well with midges dropping off and baetis becoming more and more prolific. By late May the waters can rise to very high levels making wading difficult with the willow choked banks.
