Missouri River Reports

Thursday, February 4th

Posted by Yankee Jim on Feb 4, 2016 | Missouri River This should be a nice weekend on the Missouri. Temps seem to be getting warmer and the "W" isn't forecast to be too bad. The best fishing so far has been nymhing the slow deep holes with large Scuds, Sow Bugs and Czech Nymphs trailed by a Midge Pupa or Baetis Nymph. The dry fly fishing has been picking up alot lately and the

Posted by Yankee Jim on Jan 28, 2016 | Missouri River The Missouri is still fishing like a champ. The temps have been pleasant and the wind bearable lately. The majority of fish will continue to hold in the slow, deep holes for a while looking for Scuds, Sow Bugs and Midges, with some Streamer Dudes having success around the Dam. Fish have been rising here and there in the side channels and a few other

Posted by Yankee Jim on Jan 20, 2016 | Missouri River The Missouri should definately be on your short list for a long day trip or a nice weekend. The temps are rising a little and the days are getting longer, making a couple hour drive a little more worth it. The Midges hatches have been improving enough to plan on some dry fly fishing, even though it probably won't be everywhere all day. Nymphing

Sunday, December 27th

Posted by Yankee Jim on Dec 27, 2015 | Missouri River The Missouri is still a great option. It has been a little cold and looks like it might stay cold until New Years Day or so. The River will fish best from the Dam to Craig or a little downstream. Nymphing the slow deep holes is usually the most productive this time of year. Have plenty of Rainbow Czech Nymphs, Scuds and Sow Bugs ready

Posted by Yankee Jim on Nov 28, 2015 | Missouri River The Missouri is still fishig pretty darn good right now. There isn't any slush below Howser Dam or below Holter. The fish have moved into the slow deep runs for the Winter months. The fish have been eating Scuds, Sow Bugs or Czech Nymphs with a Tungsten Midge Pupa dropper like crazy. Some fish will still chase a streamer here and there and the

Posted by Yankee Jim on Nov 18, 2015 | Missouri River The Missouri is a great option as we get into the Winter. You don't need to be fishing until 9 or 10 and you're done by 4 or 5. The Baetis hatches have turned to Midges but the fish are rising to them throughout the day. The Streamer bite has been good as well. The weeds are not an issue any more and the Browns are still

Posted by Yankee Jim on Nov 10, 2015 | Missouri River The Missouri is fishing great right now. The BWO hatches have been pretty regular in the afternoons lately, especially when it's been cloudy and wet. Guys are getting it done with Streamers as well since the weeds aren't an issue this time of year. On a nice weather day it doesn't hurt to be there a little early but if you are

Monday, October 12th

Posted by Yankee Jim on Oct 12, 2015 | Missouri River Reports from the MO were pretty good this weekend despite the wind on Sunday. There are still plenty of Psudo's out, a few Trcos,  as well as some Baetis. Not every fish is looking up, but enough to make a set up dry fly rod worth while. The Streamer fishing has been improving quite a bit lately too. The Voodoo Priest has been

Monday, October 5th

Posted by Yankee Jim on Oct 5, 2015 | Missouri River Reports from the Missouri were great this weekend. I guess 35 with some rain and snow mixed in helps the trout fishing a little. The Baetis really popped the last few days. Nymphing with a Midge Pupa or San Juan Worm and a Baetis Nymph has been about the best bet unles the hatches are strong. The Hopper fishing should be about over unles it gets

Tuesday, September 29th

Posted by Yankee Jim on Sep 29, 2015 | Missouri River We have had a few reports of decent dry fly fishing on the MO lately but we expect some rain and cooler temps later this week so it should get alot better. Pseudos and Baetis should be on the menu. Nymphing with a Midge Pupa and a Baetis Nymph has been about the best bet the last couple of days. The Hopper fishing should last
