Madison River: A Blue Ribbon Trout Stream

In southwest Montana there is a river world renowned as a trout fishery. Superheated water from the Yellowstone Volcano is rich in minerals such as silica and calcium bicarbonate. After it’s forced to the surface in the many hot springs and geysers, it makes its way to the Madison River. These mineral rich waters are everything a thriving aquatic ecosystem needs, and the result is a trout fishery with an abundance of food. This supports a large population of large trout, and has given the Madison River the status of a Blue Ribbon Trout Stream. Fly fisherman across the globe dream about the chance to wet a line in these pristine waters.
