115,000 Anglers on Madison River

August 12, 2004 By: Marshall Cutchin

“The upper Madison River from Ennis Lake to Hebgen Lake took over last year as the most heavily fished water in the state. More than 115,000 anglers dipped a line in that reach of the Madison between March 2003 and February 2004, according to a Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks report.” That’s a large amount of felt hitting river rock.
