Missouri River Spring Special 2013!
Our annual, and incredibly popular “Missouri River Spring Special”, is here again. In fact, bookings are strong and if you would like to plan a trip to the Missouri River for some early season fishing, we suggest you do it now.
The Spring Special runs from March 15 through April 30. During this time, all guide trips are $300 (reg. $495), and are the same as our regular full-day trip which includes lunch, beverages, all flies and tackle, and equipment of you need it.
At these prices you shouldn’t care, but many of our customers have experienced some of the best fishing of the season – including dry fly fishing – during the last 2 seasons. You can expect great streamer and nymph fishing, but heavy midge hatches on many days bring fish to the surface. Unlike many western tail-waters, our fish really key up on Clusters, and the most productive patterns are often large #12-14 cluster patterns. By large, we mean easy to see!
You can also expect to see some Skwala Stoneflies, and possibly some BWO and March Brown hatches towards the end of April.
Nymph fishing is the typical. Pink scuds, midge and BWO nymphs fished 4-6 feet deep. You will catch fish and plenty of them.
Streamer fishing is very popular, and many anglers hit the lower sections and stick to it for the best success.
Discounted lodging is also available at The Craig Trout Camp. The popular Rainbow and Brown Cabins are $100/night (occupancy 2), the Sutton Place is $200 (occupancy 4), and the Craig House is $350/night (occupancy 6).
New for this year we have additional discounted lodging available to accommodate everyone who participates in our Spring Special:
The Beach House in Craig – $250/night – reg. $350 (occupancy 4)
The Missouri River Trout House – $250/night – reg. $350 (occupancy 4)
The Stickney House – $350 – reg. $450 (occupancy 6)
The bottom line is that you can get a guided trip and lodging for 2 people – plus enough cash left over for meals and a few cocktails for the same as just a guided trip during the summer! Your only other expenditures will be your MT fishing license and a gratuity for your guide.
