I floated the channels portion of the Madison with my sister Judy today. the fishing was slow, but we did manage to catch a few small fish in the morning. then, Judy caught a beautiful 16-17 inch brown trout on a hopper pattern.

i fished subsurface, and moments later caught a similar sized rainbow that ran downstream 60-70 feet.

it was a nice day, even if the fishing was slow. we spotted half a dozen bald eagles, deer, osprey, killdeer, sandhill cranes and uncountable ducks on the lake as we rowed to our takeout.

fishing remains slow on the Madison, with scant hatches.
