Posted by Nick Moses on Jul 18, 2015 | Missouri River If you like techy dry fly fishing to picky fish the Missouri is a good option right now with good numbers of Tricos and PMDs. The nymphing has also been good through the upper stretches, mostly with smaller mayfly nymphs. Some weeds are starting to show up so be prepared to slap some of those off if your nymphing especially lower on the river.

Posted by Britton on Jul 13, 2015 | Missouri River The Missouri River is crowded but remains a solid option.  The nymphing above Craig has been good on an assortment of Caddis soft hackles and PMD nymphs.  Anglers are running long leaders up high in mid river and switching to short leash rigs in the shallower runs.  Tricos are back out in full force after the cooler weather earlier in the week

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.
