Missouri River April Tuesday Fishing Report
Warmer weather today, yesterday, and tomorrow.
We dig it.
Nymphing not too bad. I found it a bit difficult yesterday. And the fish are moving around a bit with the unsettled water. Today up to 7290cfs and 38F. Cold water for the season. Higher water than normal. It can be weird out there.
But some like it weird.
We found fish in a bit quicker water than I had anticipated. Encouraging. Water temps actually near 39F. So that was weird too.
Fish were eating the BWO nymph. Fished the Radiation Baetis with success. Czech nymph worked too. Fishing anywhere from 5′ to 7′ split to bobber.
I hear rumors of better dry fly fishing the past couple days. I did not see many on the upper river on Monday. Meaning none. Everything starts well below Craig, then moves upriver. Important. knowledge to remember as hatches begin including the maturation of said hatch.
This year be a smarter angler.
Stuffing more flies in bins daily keeps Ninch busy.
