Missouri River Fall Fishing

Autumn on the Missouri River.

Fall is our favorite time to fish the Mo’. Mornings often involve pounding the banks with bright streamers, and afternoons are spent hunting heads during our reliable baetis hatches. Brown trout are aggressive before the spawn, and the rivers Rainbows are looking to gorge before winter. The Missouri River stays warm through November, and you can expect great fishing nearly to Christmas.

Blackfoot River fly fishing

Fall Fishing on the Blackfoot River.

Our favorite local freestone experiences some great fishing before winter settles in. Water temperatures cool quickly at these higher elevations, and the Cutthroat trout gorge on mayflies, caddis and terrestrials. Streamer fishing is also productive, and the crowds of summer have vacated, leaving the river quiet except for a few fly fisherman (and women!). We highly recommend this trip.

Check it. Halloween Streamer pattern. Tim Cammisa ties this cool pattern that would work about anywhere. Enjoy. Be safe tonight. Kids out wandering. Out of work fishing guides drinking. Designated drivers are the key! Smart.

ALWAYS WORTH THE TRIP

Mark and I have spent more than a few days fishing the Blackfoot River this summer. Day off fishing. The kind we like. Here, Mark talks about the difference between mighty famous tail-waters like the Missouri, and blue-collar freestones like the Blackfoot. Each has their own advantages. For us, the simplicity and relaxing pace of a freestone is always worth it.
