It’s still summer out here on the Missouri, we have chicks catching fish!

We are praying for the cooler days of September.   It looks like we have a few more days of this heat left but the good stuff is around the corner.  That’s right start dreaming of those BWOs, October most likely but a man can dream.

The fishing has remained steady, the same as a few days ago. Nymphing is good to great up near the dam. Terrestrials can be good in the afternoon. Hoppers are getting better. Trico’s are hanging around for some dry fly action in the morning.  Flows are still around 3,000 cfs and the water is topping out in the high 60’s.

The recreational floaters have calmed down a bit and the fishermen couldn’t be happier.

Favorite Flies: Yeti Hopper Purple #12, B/C Hopper Dropper Yellow #10, CDC Flying Ant #16, Bird of Prey #16, PT #20, Zebra Midge #20, Mirage Nymph #22, Sparkle Minnow #6, Wooly Bugger White #4.


Get out there mid-week and enjoy less boats!!
