Friday Fishing Report

madison-riverWell, the fishing has been great and the fishing has been poor, depending on where you were fishing. Box Canyon is still hot, with the water levels low, it’s better to wade than float, but the fishing is very good there.

Down in Harriman things have cooled off until we get the next hatch. I talked to two guys this week who fished Harriman for six hours without catching anything. At the same time, there was another guy fishing the box who caught 35 fish in the same amount of time.

So it’s a little spotty.


Fall River is low, low low. If you love to fish Fall River, now’s the time. They’re doing well on the upper stretches from Cave Falls down to Squirrel. Lower stretches are spotty right now.

The lakes have been good. Fishermen are catching bigger fish right now than they have been, although the numbers are still low. From what I can tell, those who know how to fish the reservoirs are doing well. Those who don’t are finding out what doesn’t work.

Farther afield, the Madison has been hot from up in the canyon to a little below the mouth of the canyon. Water levels have dropped there as well, although not quite as dramatically.

So bring your rod and reel and get up here. Summer will soon be over and you’ll wonder why you didn’t fish more?
