Life on the Missouri River Montana in Craig.

Do you have that stamp?  Bag Limit Bill does.  If you fish in the evenings you will see him out and about.  Gun shouldered and two hander swinging his favorite flies.  Cast and Blast time folks.  Wait for that low ceiling day, it gives those feathered creatures more comfort to fly into shooting range.  Be.. read more →

It takes a few days, it won’t feel like Art until day 3 lets say. You need a routine and by day 3 you will establish said routine. It’s the fine details that make up a great fish camp.  It’s that empty bottle of Jameson next to the fire ring that won’t move cause it.. read more →

Some people say that everything is bigger in Texas. They are probably right, especially whey you get a bunch of attorneys from the lone star state hanging around The Scenic Valley Lodge. Last night they were met by local guide Dave Payne and his band Helena Handbasket for some good picking and BBQ. Rumor has.. read more →

  Not everyone is as lucky as I am. After my first LIFE I found a girl that wants to fish. She knows not to go all the time but pushes me into it on other days. She moved to Craig Montana for me this summer, enough said. read more →

  We are pleased to welcome a great group of ladies in Craig this weekend. It isn’t very often that one could say there might be a few more women then men in the area. read more →

It feels like July out on the river, not because of the weather or the shorter days. Mostly it’s just all the traffic on the river. Some of the river closures have been lifted around the state, but people are still flocking to The MO. Maybe it’s just the good fishing… read more →

The inventor of the Jimmy’s.. read more →

Home, Life in Craig 8 Comments

When I first started Steelheading it took a while for my friends and family to understand why I was always fishing, but never catching any fish. It can be hard to justify your fishing to someone who doesn’t fish for these elusive anadromous creatures. In fact, most people think you’re crazy. Things just don’t add.. read more →

  That is right, FINALLY, rafting season is on the downward slide.  It is about time!  Stacking, strapping, launching, cleaning, pumping, dragging, driving and just generally looking at rafts is getting old.   Don’t get me wrong, we love rafts here at the Currentseam.  They can get you into waters that a hard boat can’t… read more →

William Brann, Wild Bill, Bag Limit Bill, One eye’ Bill, Billy Bass, Buffalo Bill, Billy Bear, Bill, Billy, or whatever you want to call him. Just know this guy seeks out the large ones. This fish should be for next weeks Hump Day Trout, but I couldn’t wait to get this slab of a brown.. read more →
