Missouri River Fly Fishing Report for October 5, 2014

If time presents itself, you might think about making your way out to The MO… Bug life is prevalent, Fall is slowly but surely showing her face, and the fish are hungry. Craig saw a little snow and some colder weather last week, which seems to have flipped the proverbial “switch.” With temps holding in the upper 60’s for the next few days, expect to see BWO’s, Caddis, and Callibaetis. It might be the mid afternoon before a lot of bugs start dancing, so if you get the conditions for it, chucking a streamer might be a good way to pass the time. Nymphing is, and should remain, productive. That being said, we’re on the front end of a foreseeable few weeks of solid Dry Fly fishing. Our BUGS of choice:
