Fly fishing adventures in Montana
Madison River  

Fly fishing the Madison River

THE MADISON VALLEY is home to the Madison river, arguably the most famous trout river in north America. The Madison begins it journey high in the Rockies of Yellowstone Park, flowing south along the valley for ninety miles, turning north to join with the Missouri river in central Montana at the foot of the Rocky’s Continental Divide.

This is ‘big sky’ country with scenery of epic proportions and the Madison offers the ultimate blue ribbon fly fishing water with a density of over 1000 trout per river mile.

Madison float trips are a magical experience. Your guide reads the waters ahead, advising of upcoming lies, steering you over hot spots whilst keeping you in synchronous drift with your fly. The hard part is concentrating on fishing with so much fabulous scenery to distract the eye.

Wade fishermen also have miles of wonderfully varied water to explore: boulder runs, riffles, islands, back streams and steep undercuts banks are home to large voracious browns.
