Hopper Time on the Mo!
Denny with this nice Brown Trout caught blond fishing Wednesday morning.
Then we tossed tiny dries at Trico fish for 3 hours.
Then hopper fished all the way home.
A nice time to be on the Missouri River with the dry fly fishing considered by many, out, and certainly the industry characters…Very Good!
Is it July or early August action on the techy dry fly? No. Not really. But good action for the morning session if you like hunting heads. And we certainly do.
The Blackfoot is fishing well too. I am headed that way this morning with a couple long time guests from Arkansas. They like a day over the divide on their annual trip to the Missouri River.
Nymphing is great too. Head up to the Holter Dam and row around in circles. Fish are up there en masse! Zebras, Czech’s, Little Green Machines, Two Bits, S & M’s, Frenchie’s and more are ont he list of must have nymphs this time of year.
The river is still relatively quiet. While we do see an increase in guided guests in September we commonly will not see another boat ont he river, if you fish anywhere but the dam, for long periods of time.
