Madison River - Below Ennis Lake

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Caddis haven't been as thick as last week, but there are still enough around to keep fishing looking up at times. Late morning and evenings have been best for dry fly fishing. Also there are good March Brown hatches late in the day. Yellow Sallies dries and nymphs have also been working, and the hatch should be getting going soon. Caddis pupa fished under dries has also been effective. Nymphing is the best way to catch them when dries aren't working.

Seven-day forecast 

Cooler, rainy weather will be more conducive to baetis hatches starting Wednesday and going through the rest of the week.
