Mid Summer Update

Well it's been awhile since my last report. Summer tends to fly by quicker then a Salmon Fly Hatch. Works busy and the weather is so good you have to maximize your time outside before the snow starts to fly! I've been out on the water a bunch since my last post. This year I chased the Salmon Fly on the Madison with my brothers for 4 straight days. The hatch had a late start this year but we managed to time things right and get action every night on the Big Bug. The last evening was pretty epic. A big thunderstorm blew in and knocked a pile of bugs into the water, the fish went crazy and the action was lights out. The big bug was STILL present on the upper river a few days ago, I'm guessing it's still around the lake section right now. Most people are saying this is the latest they've scene the bug hatch on the Madison River.







Runoff is officially over for the season. It was a long one this year but now is the time to visit all those mountain streams you've been waiting to fish all year. I have spent a good bit of time exploring the past few weeks and it's paid off. Chubby dropper is the meal ticket right now on these waters. Nothing beats tossing a big dry in the middle of the day for feisty fish. As we approach August the famous rivers will start to peter out due to all the pressure, so head to the hills if you want some solitude and good fishing.
