Cast and Blast on the Madison River

Madison River Fly Fishing

I took my yellow lab pup Sawyer on a road trip after several days of laborious shopping for my wife's new car.  We searched for mallards and big brown trout, both of which we encountered successfully.  I also enjoyed a long night with a frozen water dog in a cold single digit tent.  After an exciting but icy morning chasing ducks, we enjoyed excellent catching on the Madison River in Yellowstone National Park.  Vibrantly colored November browns were common on every odd cast during the warmer hours of the day between noon and 4pm.  I was delighted to land six brown and rainbow trout each over 20" along with plenty of healthy smaller fish.  If that wasn't enough of a treat, elk grazed to the right and bison to the left on a bluebird day in a snowy winterland!
