Missouri River Fly Fishing Report

Missouri River Fishing Report

The fishing has been pretty good! Not the best dry fly bite but some trico eaters can be found daily. The hopper bite can be day to day. Hoppers can be stellar in the clouds.

The nymph fishing is good to great depending on who you talk to. I’ve been looking for big ones, not numbers. As you can see, the big ones have been coming to my net. Big bugs in shallow water have been my game. Guys have been throwing shallow or in the deep trenches. The cool down is coming!

August Does Not Suck

As you can see August does not suck, at least from this anglers standpoint. The dog days of summer are not the ideal fishing scenario but big browns like to eat it for the patient anglers. I always have guided some of the my biggest fish in August. Warm weather and warm water doesn’t seem to bother big browns. It might make them more hungry! The warm water makes them easier to land. While you are in you air-conditioned homes I will be here catching pigs!
