Missouri River Reports

Thursday, May 21st

Posted by Charlie on May 21, 2015 | Missouri River There has been some good dry fly fishing to be had up on the Missouri with solid bwo and march brown hatches coming off on cloudy afternoons. Nymph rigs have been very effective with scud, worm, caddis and mayfly patterns all taking plenty of fish. Haven't heard much of streamer fishing but its always worth a try.

Posted by Nick Moses on May 6, 2015 | Missouri River The Missouri River is fishing well. Flows are lower than normal for this time of year but the fishing has been good. There are plenty of Baetis and March Browns around for the dry fly anglers and the streamer fishing has also been picking up with the warmer water temperatures. Nymphing has also been solid using the normal Missouri river pink stuff with some mayfly

Posted by Charlie on Apr 8, 2015 | Missouri River Fishing has been heating up along with the water temperature. Nymphing has been very good with mayfly and firebead patterns. Midges are still around and spring baetis are starting to hatch on cloudy afternoons. Streamer fishing has also heated up especially down below Craig.

Posted by Nick Moses on Mar 31, 2015 | Missouri River The Missouri River is fishing well right now. The water temperatures are warming up into the 40s and giving anglers different fishing options other than nymphing. The streamer and dry fly bite is starting to pick up, midges and small parachutes for the dries and flashy for the streamers. If you’re nymphing you can start mixing in some mayfly nymphs along with your

Posted by Nick Moses on Mar 23, 2015 | Missouri River The Missouri River has been steady but should continue to improve as the water temperatures start to warm up. Nymphing with the usual pink stuff is working well, and flashy streamer on the swing have been picking up fish. There are midges around if you want to fish dries and the wind cooperates.

Posted by Charlie on Mar 11, 2015 | Missouri River Nymphing is good in the slow winter water with firebeads, scud, sowbug, worm and midge patterns. Overcast days offer good dry fly action with midge and midge clusters. Streamer fishing is decent at times especially when its cloudy. Smaller is better with streamers now, and flashy stuff like Skiddish Smolts or black have been producing. Also make sure to get them down deep and use

Posted by Nick Moses on Feb 27, 2015 | Missouri River More of the same winter stuff on the Mo. Nymphing slow water with deep nymph rigs will be most productive. Worms, scuds, firebeads, midges and pink stuff will all work. If you want to fish fish dries midge clusters are really your only option right now. If you’re fishing streamers think deep and slow retrieves.

Posted by Charlie on Feb 19, 2015 | Missouri River Nymphing the usual pink sowbug-scud and midge stuff has been good. Fish are holding in the slow, deep water so getting the flies in front of fish is more important than the fly itself. You can always swing or slow retrieve streamers down deep. Haven't heard much about any dry fly action, but there should be midges when its calmer and cloudy.

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.
