Happy Mondays here at Headhunters Fly Shop
High water. Check. Sunny June Weather. Check. Green hillsides. Check. Happy Mondays? Check.
Just another day on the river for us here in downtown Craig. The Dearborn is falling fast. And clearing up somewhat. It is not muddy, but yet, unclear at this moment. It is falling rapidly and your window of time is now. You may have a week or maybe more to get on this central Montana jewel.
Flies for the week? How about looking back a few posts and gathering the information. A shortcut for you folks with short term memory issues…Worms. Sows. Sallies. PMD’s. Caddis Pupa. All of the nymphal variety.
A month til we see good dry fly opportunities.
Streamer fans can toss their junk at the banks with good results. If you are good at that type of thing, there certainly are opportunities for greatness. Remember that this activity may not produce numbers like your elongated slinky style nymph rig will show you. But why not mix it up a bit during the day. Give it a shot for 30 minutes. An hour? Big brown trout are there to be had.
You can dumb luck into one with your nymph rig too. But if you like to work hard for that caramel colored trout, and enjoy your reward…then toss the streamer for a bit.
June is a busy one on the Missouri River, in Craig, specifically during high water years. IF you are planning on coming up on a whim, try and book your room today. The feller who will row the boat too. That guide will keep your arms fresh for fighting trout and drinking water. Hydrating man. The crack Headhunters Staff is waiting to accommodate you and help design your stay in the great Craig area.

Summertime on the Mo. A good time for sure.
Happy Mondays from the album Pills, Thrills, and Bellyaches. Enjoy Kinky Afro. A typical 1990 music video. Trippy. Took days to film. Not very good. A great hip tune though.
