Kirby Water Temps - Madison River Fishing Report

The temperature has dropped the past week and we're getting some snow again. Hebgen & Quake Lake have frozen over, so we done fishing these until spring  Between the lakes is very accessible with your best bet being nymphs and streamers. You'll still see some lake run browns there.  The Upper Madison has also been fishing well with nymphs and streams.  The midge hatches have been few and far in between due to cold water temperatures and sunny days.  

Dry Flies: #18 to #20 Sparkle Duns, Missing Links & Still Born Midges.

Nymphs:  #8 Black Sili Legs, #10 Biot Golden Stones, #18 Lightning Bugs, #18 Green Machines

Steamers: #6 Olive Sparkle Minnows, #6 Articulated Skully Bugger - Black ,#2 Black/Purple Slap-N-Tickles, #6 Living String Leach - Tan with White Butt, Silver Minnow #1 Bugger w/tungsten cone head
