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 →

Here is a much needed Missouri River fishing report! It has already been an incredibly crazy year here on the MO. We had a very mild January and spent a lot of time with some quality winter fishing…then February came in with some serious winter force. Once we were able to claim a few of.. 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.

It’s that time of year again; hunters have taken to the hills, the ambitiously lethargic have returned to their recliners for the remainder of the year and the Salmo trutta are getting feisty. Arguably one of the more voracious fresh water salmonids the fall Brown Trout feeding frenzy is kicking off. The frenzy comes from the.. read more →

Finally getting back into the swing of things here in Craig MT; personally and fishing wise. With all the college kiddos’ back on campus the Craig shop called in the Calvary, so for the last few weeks yours truly has been kickin’ it in the town of two bars and too many trout. The primary.. read more →

I know this post might be pushing it a bit for some of you out there. Those of you who can’t seem to break the habit of fishing the same run, same river, same flies, same everything.

If you’ve been swinging by the shop or spending your afternoons around the Blackfoot Brewery over the last two months you’ve probably heard me bitching whining about my lack of motorized transportation. The good news is the Subaru is back on the road and I’m mobile again! After eight arduous weeks of fly fishing booty.. read more →

June 10, 2015 – Missouri River Report Description: Flows Below Holter Dam: 6,000 CFS (Normally 7,600 CFS) Well, the late May/early June lull is back.  Around this time every year the MO experiences a lack of surface action because the water temps put us “between hatches”.  There are still plenty of fish to be caught.. read more →
