Madison River
Oct 2014 • Couples
Beautiful River, stayed at the campground right next to the river, outside of Norris, MT at Beartrap Canyon. Dry camp, no running water or electricity. Area of campground right up the road had a water faucet and outhouse. We had water in the RV, dry camping is fine with us. The spot we picked was beautiful. We stayed three nights. Great time fly fishing. Beautiful sky at night. No light pollution. Went for a hike at the end of the canyon. Trail goes right by the river. Not many people around in October. Very relaxing.

Worlds Best Fly Fishing River
Jul 2013 • Friends
Recently spent a day fly fishing on the Madison river. Weekdays are best due to the lower number of fly fisherpeople. If you are not an experienced fly fisherperson, this is the best since most of the Madison is in open fields which means you don't have to worry about getting caught in trees and bushes. I believe I read that the Madison has an estimated 4000-8000 trout per mile. Great Browns and Rainbows in the 15" to 22" size.

Enjoy!

Scenic Madison River
Aug 2011 • Friends
While working for the old Yellowstone Park Company, I used to listen to tourists who wondered, "what's all the fuss about Yellowstone? I haven't seen anything remarkable yet."
It was obvious these people hadn't ventured off the highway by more than a few feet!

One of the most beautiful sites to be seen in Yellowstone is the scenic, peaceful and very beautiful Madison River. However, you need to get off the main road to truly appreciate its beauty! The stretch of the Madison inside the Park the flows from Madison Junction to West Yellowstone is what I'm referring to in particular. It's easy to miss as tourists make the dash for the Park exit and West Yellowstone, with all of its commercial attractions. To appreicate the beauty of this magnificent river, you need to pull off the highway, take time to stop at some of the many turnouts, walk a few steps and just open your eyes.

Bluer blues, greener greens, not to mention the wildlife are just waiting to be appreciated! Grab your pole and kreel, walk down to the water's edge and appreciate the curve of the river as it meanders slowly to the western border of the Park. Who knows, you may even be surprised by the local elk often seen here. Take it slow, get out of your car and enjoy nature's wonders!
