Madison River Fly Fishing Trips
Fly Fish The Fabled Madison River!
The Madison River had reached legendary status for fly fisherman decades ago and deservedly so. Technically a tailwater, it fishes like a freestone as well. Its impressive hatches; swarms of Mother’s Day Caddis, PMDs, terrestrials, and the mighty Salmon Fly are all on the menu for these hungry trout. This legendary river ranks as one of the top fisheries for trophy trout fly fishing in Montana and features some of the most breath taking scenery in Montana! Our Madison River Fly Fishing Trips do not disappoint!
The Fifty Mile Riffle as it’s been coined features a seemingly endless riffle from Quake Lake to it’s confluence with the Jefferson and Gallatin Rivers in Three Forks Montana. Some of the upper sections are home to some 5000+ fish per mile that is literally stuffed with wild brown and rainbow trout. Book your Madison River fly fishing trip and enjoy a one-of-a-kind adventure with our experienced, fun, and friendly Madison River fly fishing guides. The prime fishing water surrounded by the Madison range to the east and Gravelly Mountains to the west, it’s majestic views makes the Madison one of the most stunning, prettiest rivers in all of Montana.
Although the Madison may look like a simple float and cast-to-the-bank river, she is truly the siren of Southwest Montana’s rivers. Uncovering her secrets takes time, discipline, and many years of experience. The guides at FishTales Outfitting know this well and they’ll prove it to you by coaxing impressive trout from lies that you would think no sizable trout would ever think to call home.
