Missouri River Fishing Report

Missouri River Fishing Report 9.16.13

Getting better every day. Really a nice September shaping up here on the Missouri River.

Nymphing is the most popular fishing style but that does not mean it is always the best. Many are blind fishing big hoppers, terrestrials, ants, beetles, sunken caddis, Callebaetis, October Caddis. A long list of possibilities for angling success.

That is  what make the Missouri river great. The opportunities. On any given day you can seek out small techy dry fly fish. You could swing a few up in soft runs. Short Leash Nymph the piss out of run and gun boat fishing. Deep Nymph them in the center of the river. Blind dry fly fish. Or streamer fish. You could do that too.

The week ahead makes us smile with the weather gods looking kindly upon us here in Central Montana. With the water temperature falling as the days get shorter and nights get longer we are anticipating greatness …


Nighttime lows into the 40’s. Real nice my fishy friends. Cooler nights, earlier baetis hatch.
