Thursday, September 11th

Posted by Nick Moses on Sep 11, 2014 | Missouri River The Missouri is in good shape. Nymphing is good with the normal tailwater stuff. Fishing up top has been best with Pseudo’s and Callibaetis,. The cold weather will probably put an end to the hoppers. The streamer fishing should continue to get better as well. Fall is here!

Posted by Bryn on Sep 5, 2014 | Missouri River The flows on the MO are a bit higher than average but the fishing has still been great.  The dry bite has slowed lately with afternoons and evenings being the most productive with the dries.  On the right day with ideal cooler conditions the baetis are popping so keep an eye out for those.  Flies:  BWO para wulffs, cripple patterns, lighting

Posted by Bryn on Aug 16, 2014 | Missouri River The Missouri is running a bit higher than average still but has not influenced the fishing.  The storms forecasted may or may not improve the fishing but the good thing is the fish are eating a variety of flies.  Trico spinners are good choices from mid-to late morning.  Hoppers are out and the bite can be hit or miss but is a

Posted by Nick Moses on Aug 9, 2014 | Missouri River The Missouri River is still fishing well per usual. There have been good spinner falls of Trico’s in the morning around 9am, and decent hopper bites throughout the day.

Posted by Bryn on Jul 30, 2014 | Missouri River The dry-fly fishing on the Missouri has been great this year.  There are so many natural Tricos on the water at times that you might have better luck not throwing a Trico pattern.  PMDs in the mornings and caddis in evenings are great options.  Hoppers along the banks with a bead head dropper are also a promising rig as hopper season continues
