Fishing Report

Missouri River Montana Fishing Report 10.23.13

The month is flying by…October is one of our favorite months. November is not too bad either.

The weather and water temps are cooperating for a lengthy fall. Will you make it out this fall? Just remember, November is generally quiet on the river. You can have your cake, trout, and eat it too!

Water temps are holding in the 51F range. Just dipped a little below last night and the trout are damn happy!. The water flows are at the 2013 average 3K. Same today, same tomorrow. Some say pigs in bucket, the trout that is.

Missouri River Fishing Report

Fly fishing has been good. Not great like the overcast skies can bring. I mean the rising fish part. The nymphing is always very good. Happy faces from the bobber gang.

The sun has kept away the pods of rising fish, but not the singles. You can find the fish in historical rising spots, and sometimes a nice small pod. The best opportunity is near dark. The sun comes off the water and the fish come to attention. Find the big feller in amongst the smaller juvenile trout. Or catch all of the small ones, then attack the big guy!

The bugs the last few days have not cooperated either. We are due for a river-wide explosion. Maybe today? Maybe this weekend when we expect the inclement weather to return?


Angler are enjoying fishing the entire river from the dam to Cascade. The canyon is fishing well too.

The streamer bite is not on fire either, but we have been hearing a few bright spots. Mornings, and evenings. Small black, bright Skiddish and Ramp to Ramp…the Coffey’s Sparkle Minnow. Try white, or yellow too!

Guided trips out daily through the end of the month into November. Discounted November lodging is on tap with Izaak’s open til the New Year. So why not come out and try your hand at some fall fly fishing? You might just like it.
