The Madison River

The Madison River is thought by many to be Montana’s first Blue Ribbon Trout Stream. To this day it is Montana’s most trout dense stream. Known as the “Worlds Longest Riffle”, named for the 50 miles from Quake Lake to Ennis, the Madison River offers some of the most incredible fishing and scenery found today.

  • Great early season (March and April) fishing

  • Water holds fish from banks, to boulders and even middle water

  • Huge grasshopper patterns in late July and August are a favorite

  • Clouds of Caddis

  • Truly unmatched scenery

  • Over 4,000 fish per mile

  • Classic Western fly fishing


"The most popular fishing destination in the state …and for good reason."
