I and few others on the MRO crew went down to the Wade Section of the Upper Madison River last Friday in search of midges, it did not disappoint. We ended up taking a good walk downstream of Raynolds, snow is shin-deep and wind packed, really not too bad at all. Plus, the slightly tougher walking will warm you up nicely between spots.
At age 21 Jake moved to West Yellowstone from Missoula in May 2012. That first summer he spent two months living in a tent, before moving into a 1971 Lark camper until October. After three years of part-time guiding, Jake moved into a full-time guide job with MRO. During the winter he spends his time spey casting, midge fishing, steelhead fishing, and cross-country skiing while off work. Jake’s laid-back attitude and patience are unmatched, he loves taking the day slow; walking the boat and always having one more fly to try before moving on.
