Thursday, November 13th

Posted by Charlie on Nov 13, 2014 | Missouri River The water temps out of Holter are still holding in the 40's which makes fishing below the dam one of the better options right now. Nymphing with midge, baetis, egg, scud and sowbug patterns have been best. Slow stripped or swung streamers have also been working well. Look for baetis or midge hatches when conditions are right.

Posted by Nick Moses on Oct 31, 2014 | Missouri River The Missouri River is a good option this time of year. Nymphing is consistent with worms, scuds and sows, firebead stuff, and small midge stuff. Streamer fishing with heavy sink lines can also produce some nice fish, just slow down your retrieves a little bit as the water temperatures drop. If you get some cloud cover midge baetis hatches will provide good opportunities for dry

Posted by Nick Moses on Oct 14, 2014 | Missouri River The Missouri River is fishing well right now. Nymphing has been solid with small maylflies and tailwater stuff, like scuds, sows, midges and worms. Streamer fishing has been good as well and should continue to get better, flashy has been best especially on the sunnier days. Dry fly fisihing has also been good in the afternoons and evenings, but there haven’t been large

Posted by Bryn on Oct 3, 2014 | Missouri River The Missouri has been fishing well with nymphs and dries.  There are some weeds breaking up so the streamer fishing and heavier nymphs make it a bit more challenging.  The dry bite is picking with the BWO hatches and fishing is and should continue to be promising.  Flies:  Parachute Adams, Rusty Spinner, Pseudo and Baetis patterns, zebra midge, lightning bug, Czech

Posted by Bryn on Sep 19, 2014 | Missouri River The Missouri is experiencing some weeds from them releasing water from the dam which has made the fishing a bit challenging especially with streamers.  But if you are willing to deal with the weeds then you should see some decent fishing.  The cooler overcast days will trigger the BWO hatches.  The mornings and early afternoons have been good dry-fly fishing with Pseudos

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 27, 2014 | Missouri River There are some weeds breaking up on the MO being that it is a tailwater river.  The trico bite slowed down after the cooler wet days but is picking back up as the warm days continue.  Although more rain storms are forecasted for this weekend.  Nymphing has been promising and keep an eye out for the baetis hatches as we approach the

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
