Waters are on the rise on the big hole, but still has good visibility. The big hole goes up but rarely gets too dirty to fish its headwaters have never been logged thus high water ... morebut low sediment load. Fished the big hole a week ago, and caught the water on a spike the cfs came up almost 800 while we were on it.. Like most of the rivers around here you want to catch it when the water is on the way down not on the way up. As predicted fishing was kind of a bust, 4 fish in 5 hours and none very big. Seemed like the only way to catch fish was pull over at all the tributaries coming in and fish a San Juan worm on a bobber. Ouch! River has been an a slow decline for the last week and fishing has improved markedly. Still big, about 3000 cfs at Melrose, which is right about at normal for this time of year. Fishing the last few days has been good. Salmonfly nymphs are starting their migration to the banks so big black nymphs size 2 or 4 heavily weighted in the slow water. Best results are coming from getting out of the boat and pounding the slow water on the banks and the slow inside corners There are still a few leftover squallas and a few mayflies in the foam homes, but it is tough to catch em on dries unless you find some fish rising. More rain on the horizon and since the land is already saturated it doesn't take a lot to jack water levels Keep an eye on water levels and whenever it starts to fall get out there and get some.

Everything is starting to color up the ups and down of spring runoff has begun. We fished Ennis lake day befor yesterday and the water color was definitely off. What I like to call ... moresteelhead green. We fished a long day, got the lake around 9;00 in the morning and got off around 6:00 that evening. Hooked about 15 fish all big, the largest was a 21 inch rainbow but all were over 16in, The MVP for the day was a size 8 crystal bugger fished slow and deep. We used a sink tip line and fished mostly in the mouths of the river channels coming in. Weed growth hasn't really started in earnest ,making the fish a little hard to find. We looked for deep banks and anywhere there was water flowing into the lake Anglers don't seem to like the dirty water as there has been little or no other fishermen on the water since water clarity has changed. The weather hasn’t been particularly inviting either Lots of north wind and rain . Burrr! But like they say in Montana “ no such thing as bad weather just bad clothes”

Like Everything else in the area, good snow pack and good spring rains have waters on the rise, but water clarity is still good enough to fish dries. We have been fishing crawdad patterns ... morewith a small pink scud or a worm on behind it. Fish seem more interested in the small stuff. It has been a little on the cold side but here are still a few caddis coming out in the evening, but are hard to fish blind, need to find rising fish, which can be done look for the dead water next to the bank and check out any foam homes you can find. There are not a lot of salmon flies on the lower but there are some and they are starting to get active big, heavy and black should start working down there soon. The was a lot of angler traffic last week but recent cold rainy weather has pretty much sent most people home. Fishing gets solid B, B+ if you figure in the low angling pressure. The lower madison is dam controlled so water levels do not change as radically as on other rivers. This makes it a more predictable option in these times of spiking and receding water levels. If you want to catch a fish on a dry this is still probably the place to do it.

Fished yesterday from pallasades to Macatee Bridge water clarity about 12 to 18 inches. Hooked fifteen fish landed 10. Not exactly a dry fly day. Water bumped up about 200 while we ... morewere on it but fish didn’t seem to mind. The MVPs were big and black right on the bank fished both big black salmonfly nymphs and some large black wooly buggers. Had a red worm as a trailer and in both cases the fish wanted the big meat. Saw a couple of fish on the worm but most of the action was on big and black. The color is coming mostly from the west fork of the madison , but we drove up above quake lake and both beaver creek and Cabin creek are running color but it is about the same color as the Madison so things should stay stable for the foreseeable future. The water color is off (more green than brown)but it is definitely fishable if you're brave enough to face the spring weather.

Lower The best fishing occurs during the midday. BWO hatches are consistent with the higher temperatures. You might try throwing in some skwala adults and nymphs. Water is being let ... moreout of Deer Creek. Flows are extremely high, ranging from 564 ft3s below Deer Creek to 449 ft3s near Harbor Drive.

Middle
Look for stoneflies in sizes 10 to 12, and use a BWO dropper for best results. Water temperatures average around 43 degrees. Flows are moving extremely fast, with current levels near 267 ft3s and flows near the Jordanelle release at 305 ft3s. The average at Charleston is flows at or around 286 ft3s. Be cautious of the faster currents.

The lake is almost ice free as of April 28. Docks will be going in at the marinas over the coming weeks. Rental boats are available. Roads are clear to the Renegade side of the reservoir. ... moreBe aware of floating ice sheets. The fishing has been extremely good as overwintering fish are hungry and feeding. Try dark-colored leeches, marabou jigs, jerkbaits and spinners and tip them with chub meat or Powerbait.

Flows continue to run high with off-color water. In these conditions, some anglers report success using nightcrawlers and San Juan worms. The Magpie and Botts campgrounds are now open.

There haven't been many anglers fishing the Weber lately. A few persistent anglers reported good fishing throughout the river. Anglers have had success using grey scuds, zebra midges, ... moreblue-wing olives and Rapalas. Law enforcement officers are still encountering many anglers who believe they are allowed to fish in the river on posted private property. Without written permission, those anglers are trespassing. Please remember that you must obtain written permission to fish waters that flow through properly posted private property.

Spring fishing has brought out the hatches, especially the midges and blue-winged olives. Some anglers are also using terrestrial patterns like ants, crickets and hoppers with a scud ... moreor shrimp trailer or a streamer with a trailer. Match the hatch on the surface or try nymphs and streamers deep along flow seams and shorelines. The water is a bit murky from muddy waters flowing through the dam, so streamers are a good choice. Try sculpin, rainbow or brown imitations followed by scuds, zebra midges, soft hackles, San Juan worms, etc. Set the hook with any change in the strike indicator. Spin fishing is almost always good. Marabou or hair jigs (Zig Jigs) in earth-tone colors are always a good option in shallow or deeper water. Try crankbaits like Rapala Husky Jerks or Xraps in deeper water. Brightly colored spoons and spinners will also entice fish.
