Missouri River Fly Fishing

Fly-Fishing The Mighty Mo

Lots of water, Lots of big browns! The river has been plenty high this year, high water makes for some big fish. That being said, I’m over the high water and the nymph fishing! We can look forward to a good hopper fishing season but I’m afraid the may-fly and caddis hatch will be wasted due to high flows. If you waited to long to make plans this season, that might be a good thing. Lets hope the water drops and the fish rise. Until then we will just keep catching these!

Had some fun times with the Tim Stein group. These guys do it right! Rent a house in Craig Montana and fish the Missouri for 3 days. Great food and great guides. They are booked for the same time next year because it is that good! Yes they do have a little competition, The biggest brown takes the cup. Ray won the prestigious award two years running. Not easy to do when the guides are trying to crush each other and the clients are out for blood! Good times with good guys!

April is a fun time to fish in Montana! You never know what you will get as far as weather or hatches. It sure is fun when it all comes together! We sure had a good trip with old friend Mike Lavoy from Havre, MT. We had one of those days where we got them with streamers, nymphs and dry’s. Mike had one of those days he won’t soon forget! The picture will help him remember his stellar day.

You missed the real good stuff, like fish rising all day to caddis and PMDs. That being said, fishing is still OK. Catching some big ones with the right kind of anglers. What are the right kind of anglers you ask? Guys who are patient and willing to throw the hopper all day regardless of how many bites, a rare breed indeed. For all others we have bobbers! plenty of action on the bobbers! Bring your sun screen and lets fish.
