The Madison River is one of the most highly rated fly fishing rivers in North America. There is an abundance of Rainbow Trout, Brown Trout, and Mountain Whitefish. More trophy fish come out of the Madison than most rivers in Montana.

The Madison River runs for 183 miles through Wyoming and Montana; however, this section of the Madison is between Hebgen Lake and Earthquake Lake. You get there by driving along Hebgen Lake Road to the Campfire Lodge Resort. Turn into here and head down the dirt road to your right (Ghost Village Rd). You can park anywhere along this road where there is space. 

The kinds of flies that are going to get bites on a specific day vary throughout the season, so check out this link for the Madison River Fishing Report to see what is biting today.
