Spring Streamer Fishing
Spring is a great time to fish streamers on the Missouri River. At the time of this writing, the river is flowing at 6,880 cfs and temps are around 45 degrees F. These higher flows and increased temps can push hungry fish tight to the banks, making them prime targets for anglers fishing streamers from a boat. Structure on the bank creates mini, low-flow refuges where fish can sit and wait for their next big meal to cruise by. You’ll also find a lot of fish sitting at the upstream ends of islands or near mid-river drop-offs.
