Moods of the Madison

As the tittle of this post would suggest, the Madison has been quite moody as of late.  Our famed hatches have started to dissipate and it feels that we are in the transitional stage from bug season to fur and terrestrial season. Our slower fishing has come throughout the mid day stretches with some sporadic to great action in the morning and evening hours. Though this consistency of fishing is normal for this time of year, it seems that after the hustle and bustle of "The 4th" the trout tend to take break from the all of the action. But they will soon be back! The weather conditions have been ideal around the valley to say the least. We have been seeing much cooler temperatures in the day which has been keeping water temperature cool and the trout healthy.
