Falling off here in July

Falling off in late July

Falling off here in July

The masses have left, or gone to the Madison. Wherever they may have gone we are moving on here on the Missouri River.

Trico’s are the game here with the terrestrial making up the remainder of the day.

Crayfish for those who like trout under the surface.

Warm and hotter weather on the way here for us on the Mo. Really quite warm and we do not appreciate it. Warmer nights too will push the water temps upwards this next week. Warm, hot, sweltering weather on tap for the next 10 days.
