Missouri River May Monday Fishing Report
A wet on e this weekend again. A wet week ahead. We are hoping for sun on this Saturday’s 10th Annual Craig Caddis Fest and BBQ Cook-Off.
Again a good fishing report from the Missouri River. The soggy weather does not bather the fish.
BWO’s about over. The ones that are showing are damn small. There are some trout eating them on top, but not many. So if you think fishing reports are always rosy, we are here to tell you that the dry fly fishing is good, if you bump into a few. They are not rising bank to bank. Not even close. But everyday you hear a couple positiver reports. If you don’t know where to look, it may be slower for you. But keep your eyes peeled and you may be rewarded. March Browns are done.
So mediocre really.
If we would see some sun we may see some caddis again on the lower reaches. Tuesday and Wednesday look good for this occurrence.
Good nymphing reports. The most common flies being a worm or scud of some sort heavily weighted with some sort of slender mayfly pattern dangles below. Try a green caddis in the middle canon. Afternoons.
Short leash it as the bugs arriver.
Streamer fishing not too bad. Not rock star, but you are used to hearing that this spring. But who doesn’t like to toss a few big bugs at the bank for a while when you are freezing in the incessant rain.
Having a great time in Craig. Izaak’s changing the schedule a bit this coming week staying open later for your dinner plans. Dinner 5-10pm Tuesday-Sunday. Closed Mondays. Head over to Wolf Creek to the Oasis or down to Cascade and the Driftwood is open daily for hand made burgers! Try their deep fried tater tots. Good with Ketchup.
Headhunters open daily @ 7am and late til 8pm. All you need in Craig Montana.
