Default Mad river ohio

New to this river, does anyone have fly suggestions? I'm open to any suggestions... I don't know the major hatches either. Thanks in advance.

I live about an hour north of it and have yet to hit it. There's a nice write up in the March/April Eastern fly fishing magazine. I did hit the Clear Fork River today and pheasant tail nymphs with copper bead heads did ok. I caught one brown trout missed a couple of others and caught 12 river chubs. My brother in law caught 2 trout and about 10 more chubs on the same pattern.

Appreciate the response, from both of your responses, I'm guessing nymphs will work well...

Dont be afraid to throw big streamers either, mike Schmidt of Anglers Choice flies throws some biiig stuff in there and does well. my buddy owns property that the mad flows partly on and strangely we never fish it.

Let us know, how you did when you visit this river.

Fishing under the old Railway bridge is nice.

Will do, would a clouser minnow do the trick?

Will do, I've scanned the area with a topographic map and haven't seen a railway bridge, any clue as to where it is?

I use to fish the Mad when I lived in Columbus for a few years. There are some nice brown trout in there, but you'll have to work for them. I preferred to fish there when the water was a little high and stained. Big streamers....zonkers/sculpins in yellow, white, brown, olive, and black. Those were always the ticket.
