Madison River, Montana

Madison River, Montana

The first salmonflies show up in the Beartrap Canyon, a primitive hike-in area on the lower river. Floaters take their turn in the 40-mile section from West Fork to Ennis. Last year's hatch was remarkable, with salmonflies trickling off over a six-week period. Local Pattern: Mohawk Contact: Montana Troutfitters in Bozeman, 406-587-4707
