Madison River Fly Fishing summer (2014)

Holy cow, summer is almost over and I am FINALY updating my site. has been at the way side due to guiding every day. Sorry to all of you whom look on here waiting for me to post. This summer has been great fishing and only a few days the trout were grumpy.  When the water gets up to 72 degrees who can blame them. But with cooler weather mid day has been fishing better. Streamers have been consistent for bigger fish, especially early morning.

Ennis and the Madison valley just had it’s first cold front with one day a high of 48 degrees, it rained ALL day in the valley and snowed around 7000ft. But with that the big flying ants have come and trout are looking up again. It should be a great week and I am super excited to be fishing the surface again.

I still have some openings in September, after I get back from my annual Glacier park bear chasing trip. So give me a call and check for availability.

Thanks for reading and hope to talk to you soon.

Madison river fishing report,

From Madison River Fly Fishing aka Rob Kessler fishing adventures.

Although I am in Key West until June 12 the trout are not waiting for me. The bite is happening on the Madison and should continue to be until winter run off. With good water flows and warmer air the trout are just waiting for big buggers and girdle bugs. Held up in the deeper pockets and tail outs of the spawning holes trout are crushing the big nymphs.

I still have some prime days open June-November. So give me a call and let’s schedule your western vacation you will cherish for years.

Thank you for your interest in my website, hope to talk to you soon.
