Madison River Fishing Report

June 19, 2020

Go ahead and put the nymphs away for a while. It’s all about the big dry flies now. Warm temperatures have ignited the hatch, but it’s only just getting going as of today. 

This is the perfect time to fish a big, realistic looking salmonfly dry. Make sure to give it some action and get ready for some aggressive takes as fish are eager to eat them right now.

If you still want to nymph then you’re in luck because it has been excellent lately. #4-8 girdle bugs in various colors are producing throughout the day. Caddis and mayfly nymphs in various colors are a good trailer, along with your standard prince, copper john or hare’s ear. 

The streamer bite is good, but plan on making a lot of casts with flashy buggers or large sculpin patterns. 

Everyone’s focus should be on the dry fly. Times like these are the reason why fly fishing was invented. It’s not about catching 50 fish, it’s about catching that one fish.
