The Upper Madison hopper bite has been solid in the afternoons! Hoppers and ants have been picking up fish pretty consistently and putting a dropper behind a hopper has also been productive. Perdigon droppers have been tough to beat. It’s crazy just how effective these flies are. The streamer bite has been decent at best. Always worth a try if you are in search of a larger fish.
