Thank you to everyone who took time to comment on this issue. I believe that what we ended up with was a small win for non-residents and commercial users. Much stricter restrictions could have been imposed and these regulations seem to be a much better result than many others proposed. The new regulations will not be initiated until 2022, so things will remain status quo for this upcoming year. Remember, the Madison River remains open year round and offers good opportunities for fly fishing in the winter season.
