Fins and Feathers-Bozeman's Tip of the Week
Hoot owl has been lifted and the lower madison is fishing well. On warmer sunny days the hopper fishing should be pretty good. throwing a dropper on will likley produce some more fish as well. Nymphing is also going to work well with crawfish and worms followed by mayfly nymphs and perdigons. on the colder rainy days there has been a very good amount of BWOs and midges hatching off and you can often find large pods of rising fish.
