Getting mighty fishy my fishy friends. It is heating up and the fishing is getting a little bit better everyday.
Matt and Oliver fishing with Mark caught this killer double above from this last week. Nice fella’s!
Want to rip some lips and deep nymph all day long stacking ’em up? You can.
How about short and easy? Yes to that magic as well.
No bobber for you? DFO? Yes of course. The Missouri will provide the love.
Don’t like any of that action and love to chuck and duck all day till your arm says no more…yet you still have two miles to go? You dig that kinda fishing? Answer? Yes.
Anything you like to do we got it here in central Montana. Per above the fishing is really coming on strong and will continue to get better. The out of area guides are all here too. Most of the working guides in Montana are here including us here at Headhunters. Guides out daily. We have some killer Adipose rental boats for your pleasure too. Full service fly shop? Oh yeah. How about lodging for the remainder of the month or even into November? www.CraigLodging.com[forecast]

Let us know how we can help. Coming on November 1st we are introducing our Two Handed Spey Guided Trips for $300. More on this later.
Flows and Water Temps
Water temps continue to fall and the river has dipped in its level as well. We are loving this cooler temperature as the fish are at their peak of activeness and fighting well. Jumping too. Bottom line is that they are comfortable at this temp like we are as humans at 68F. So come out and enjoy.
The flows have dipped this last week and check out the link on the right to the USGS site for current conditions. Good wading and good rising fish level for the remainder of the month.
