Missouri River Fishing Report for 9/24/2014:


The temperatures should be dropping drastically for the end of September. Tomorrow’s high will be 90 F then look for temps moving into the 60’s the following days. This is good news for the fishermen, bad news for the recreational floaters.

Dry fly fishing has been pretty consistent and only getting better. BWO’s were out and about yesterday and the fish were eating pretty well in the evening as the high sun started to wane. Last night the big boys were fooled with Parachute Adams and a Rusty Spinner. Our BUGS of Choice:
