The Madison River originates in Yellowstone National Park and flows nearly 150 miles before joining the headwaters of the Missouri river.
The Madison river fishing is divided into the upper stretch and lower stretch each of which seems to be completely different waters. Both the Upper Madison and Lower Madison are some of Montana’s premier wild trout rivers and have been classified as a blue ribbon.
Upper Madison is known as the "50 Mile Riffle" and anglers attempting to wade fish will likely agree. Drift boat fishing is the norm here and with numerous access points, cold dam fed water, and a lot of healthy trout this is a must on every anglers list of place to fish.
The Lower Madison is shallow below the Ennis Lake dam, but we consistently catch our largest trout of the year on this piece of water. While most of our fishing on the Lower Madison is done with larger nymphs and streamers there are many opportunities for the dry fly fisher as well.
