This stretch of the Madison River is nymphing quite well at the moment. Small baetis, midge, and general attractor patterns have been the ticket. With this colder weather having moved in, the fish have mostly been holding in the deeper, slower runs and slicks until the water warms up in late morning and afternoon. Baetis and midges have been coming off around this time of day and the hatches have been lasting for a few hours, even longer on cloudy, stormy weather days.

Things have gotten a little more consistent for soft hackle and streamer fisherman the past couple of days. Hopefully we can get some of these clouds to stick around for awhile. Move your feet and cover water where you can find it, don’t be afraid to explore some new water.
Flies: #6-10 Partridge and Orange, #6-10 Partridge and Peacock, #6-10 Partridge and PT, #6 Sparkle MInnow, #4 Olive Zonker, #8 Simi-Seal Leech
The Firehole continues to fish well and produce plenty of rising fish. White Miller caddis have somewhat tapered off, but baetis hatches have been very consistent during late mornings and afternoons. As usual, if you are fishing before or after hatches, swinging smaller soft hackles is a great option.
The last day of fishing in the park is November 5th.
