    I'm going over in a couple of weeks. Has anyone advice on minimums for floating the Madison above Ennis, or on reaches to float for a 1/2 or full day? Also, I heard a rumor about permits for private boats being required? Any help you have is appreciated. Thanks.

    Later in the summer i've done better floating from lyons to Mac (full day float) or to pallisades (half day float)...but anywhere from Lyons to Ennis should be good...you don't need permits for private boats...if it were me i'd be on the river really early and fish streamers before the crowds hit the water...otherwise it'll mainly be a nymph game and possibly some hopper/terrestrial action
