The dry fly fishing has continued its upward trajectory! For whatever reason, it seems we’ve found a lot of brown trout in the net recently-not that we’re complaining. We are praying the flows stay low enough for us to get in more casts at rising fish before higher water shows up. It is.. read more →

SUMMER is in full swing here in Craig and its certainly feeling like it. Our flows have finally decreased to semi-normal flows at around 5000 CFS, opening up plenty of wade fishing opportunities throughout the entire stretch. The weather has been HOT and DRY for the most part.  We have seen very little rain in.. read more →

Summer has arrived and with it, lots and lots of aqua. We saw an increase from 11,000 CFS to 16,500 in a matter of a couple of days. As you could guess this created some chocolate milk flavored water to pour into the Missouri via its tributaries, particularly the Dearborn, which was throwing in a.. read more →

The fishing is still producing big, wild MO trout despite the high flows and muddier waters! It’s best fished from a boat or with a guide right now because wade fishing can be dangerous even for experienced wade fisherman. If you are one willing to risk it, proceed with caution. The flows on the Missouri.. read more →

The MO continues to fish extremely well this Spring. The last couple weeks have seen pretty steady flows in the mid 6000s the cfs and our water temp is slowly climbing, but the stairs are pretty steep right now. Floating the river is the most ideal way to fish the MO right now, but wade.. read more →

It’s mid March, that time of year when we could have mid 50’s and sunny one day, then 34 degrees and snow the next. The fish don’t seem to mind though, they are very willingly eating nymphs and streamers; plus when the conditions are right, they are targeting midges on the surface. The water temp.. read more →

With our morning starting out at 42 degrees in mid February, it is tough to call that winter weather, but when you slip into that 35 degree water, the MO reminds you that it is indeed still winter. Even though it is mid February, we decided to do a short float instead of wade fish;.. read more →

Missouri River Fishing Report for late January 2018.  What a crazy month (as they all tend to be). Starting off with some serious winter weather and much needed snow. Then a couple of significant “January Thaws” as Aldo Leopold used to write about so eloquently.  Those thaws (which we are just getting out of one.. read more →

We started November with lots of snow and single digits and now we started December is much milder weather!  It’s Montana mind you so the weather doesn’t really need to make any sense -you just need to be prepared for any and all of it, every month of the year. The MO is shifting into.. read more →

It appears that Fall is finally upon us, and with that, it means sometimes winter like weather. For most of us that live on the water, we love this time of year because of a couple reasons; less people on the river and some really really great fishing! But how do you make it more.. read more →
