— The Madison River rushes down out of the snows and springs atop the Yellowstone plateau, a dark blue, rock-studded, world-class fishing stream.
The fishing season is nearly finished, but a season of discontent continues.
Throughout the summer and fall, there have been traffic jams on the river, and the number of large fish has declined.
“It seems like everyone was flocking to Montana this summer,” he said.
Some say floating the jammed river feels like the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disneyland; a writer in a Montana wilderness journal recently coined another name for it: “Rivergeddon.”
