Flows on the Mo remain steady around 4300cfs out of Holter Dam. Night-time air temperatures are in decline which is keeping the trout cool, happy and eager to eat. Mornings continue to provide the best dry-fly opportunities, but expect slower starts on the real brisk mornings, as the Tricos need time to warm up and become active as well. Hatches remain strong and fish will look for spinners in the trico, pseudo and calibaetis flavors well into the late morning. Grasshoppers and ants have been getting it done throughout the river from mid-day through the evening. Great reports are a little more inconsistent on the upper end but work any stretch well and it will provide you with a bounty of HOPPERTUNITIES!
