Photo: Cold and Alone on the Madison. . .but Not Lonely

The rainbows on the Upper Madison were feeding heavily, despite the cold.

Maggie Mae Stone—a guide at The Tackle Shop in Ennis, Montana, as well as a former Trout Bum of the Week—sent in this cool shot from a solo trip she made yesterday. Here’s her description:

The Upper Madison is fishing so well that I stood out in high winds and cold weather for five hours of amazing fishing. Even though I had frozen hands, the fish were consistently hitting Zebra Midges and Copper Zonkers like they were candy. There was not another soul on the river. I love fishing this time of the year. . . .Oh, wait, any time of the year is awesome if you live in Montana!

Oh, sure. Rub it in, Maggie.
