Saturday, January 24th

Posted by Nick Moses on Jan 24, 2015 | Missouri River Not much has changed on the Missouri, nymphing deep in the slow stuff has been best with worms and pink stuff or midges. You can try throwing some streamers around as well just be sure to slow down your retrieves as the fish aren’t too willing to chase in the cold water.

Posted by Nick Moses on Jan 10, 2015 | Missouri River The Missouri is fishing best up high near the dams. Nymphing is the name of the game in slower moving slack waters. Worms, scuds, sows, pink stuff and midges are the way to go. If it warms up we should start seeing more midge activity, until then nymphing is your best bet.

Posted by Charlie on Dec 23, 2014 | Missouri River Nymphing the slower water with pink flies has been good. Not much to report for good dry fly fishing, although midge hatches should start bring more fish to the surface as winter progresses. Swinging streamers down deep has also been effective. Cold weather in the forecast might ice things up, but it usually isn't much of a problem up by the dam.

Posted by Nick Moses on Dec 11, 2014 | Missouri River The Missouri is nymphing well right now. Fishing a worm followed by followed by a scud, midge, something pink or something with a firebead will do the trick. Fish are hanging out in the slower water so concentrate your efforts there. We haven’t heard of too much going on up top, but some folks are getting them on streamers. Just make sure you

Posted by Charlie on Dec 3, 2014 | Missouri River The river is fishing well with deep nymph rigs working best. Tis the season for pink stuff to be working well, along with the usual midge and worm patterns. Swinging streamers down deep on full sink lines has also been pretty good.

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
