The chillier weather has heated up the action on the MO. We’ve seen some classic spring weather here the last few days, and it has corresponded with more bugs, more risers, and more tight lines. The flows are declining slowly, with runoff looming in the distance. The MO is currently running at 4880 CFS. Cool.. read more →

May has brought us more bugs, more people out and about on the water, and more muddy water out of the Dearborn River. The overall picture of the MO right now is one of a river in transition. The fish are eating pink sows and winter bugs off and on, Baetis off and on, and.. read more →

Here is a much needed Missouri River fishing report! It has already been an incredibly crazy year here on the MO.
