After the beneficial high flows this Spring, super scorcher July days, and the shifting smokey weather patterns these last few weeks of August, we’ve been beaten and abused by the Missouri River this season. However, not only have we still managed to continually find fish, but there’s been lots of moments of pure awesomeness. No.. read more →
