Tuesday. Just perfect.
Today Hump Day. Sunny.
Lots of bugs up on the surface yesterday. A real honest showing. A mega hatch? No, not yet.
But certainly enough to get the upward looking trout doing push-ups.
Some difficult fish out there. John and I bumped into quite a few that were damn tough. Too tough for me really. Crips, emergers, softies, duns, spinners. A fish on each one, but not as many as I would have guessed. John and I out filming a fall segment and I did not put many to the net. I whiffed on several fish.
I should really fish more.
Some easy fish must be somewhere. We did fish to some pretty obvious rising fish spots. Maybe find some fish that do not beat on often. Just a suggestion.
A bundle of weeds floating down the river. Lots. They are on the super release. Water temps slowly falling @ 1 degree/4days. Currently at 54F. Missouri River water flows are 3100cfs. We’d really like a little more water. 30% more would be welcomed.
Better streamer fishing with more flow. Better dry fly fishing with more flow. Better all the way around. Will we get our normal winter upswing? Only time will tell my fishy friends.
Ghost trout-town began Monday. Much quieter on the water Tuesday. Quite nice.
Let us know how we can help when in the fishy ‘burb of Craig Montana.
And many thanks to you the reader. We write the Missouri River daily blog for you the fanatical Missouri River angler. Thank you.
