Fly Fishing the Madison Evening Hatch

with Craig Matthews


It is one of the most famed rivers in the planet not only because of a superb trout population, but because of beauty, setting, and nearby quality accommodations and services.

With all these positive aspects seasonal crowding along the river during daytime hours is common. But prolific and reliable evening insect hatches with resulting trout activity offer more

tranquil visits to the river.

For decades Craig Mathews operated Blue Ribbon Flies and came to experience southwestern Montana waters to the fullest. Because of its fame and demand for fishing information, much of Craig’s efforts were directed at strategies on how and when to fish the Madison River for the most successful results. Through his extensive experience on the river Craig determined that one of the most satisfying times to visit is during evening hours. How to do so successfully will be the topic for the March meeting. Might be a good idea to bring not only your questions, but also your notebooks!
