The Madison chain is getting very close to becoming open water again. For many fisherman ... that means catfish are right around the corner! Catfish season on the chain is open all year, and until game fish season opens on May 4th this is your best crack at monster fish.
I'll be hopefully heading out this weekend to check conditions. Look for more info on how to go about catching these beasts in the next few days!
