Missouri River Weekend Fishing Outlook
The weather has turned for the better. Way better. Or warmer. Some wind attached to the warmer temperatures as well. Pretty normal. We get a few spells like this every winter and the local anglers take advantage of the opportunity.
If you check out the ned several days it looks like snow will be occasionally falling from our Montana skies. Not much, but threatening daily. High temps in the 20’s and low 30’s. Certainly fishable. Yesterday a bundle of wade anglers on the water with more than a handful of boats above Craig. Even a few below town too.
Swingers and nymphers alike. About half and half. Curious trout spey anglers in the store taking advantage of the demo rods and full line of trout spey gear on hand in downtown Craig. Look us up if you have any questions about anything spey related.
Firebead is the hot fly. Tailwater sows holding their own. Foxy Clousers, small leech patterns, and traditional streamer patterns are reputed to bring winter trout to hand.
A guide trip or two on the water this weekend as some are experiencing cabin fever. If you need a way out…we can help. Demo your Adipose Boat at Headhunters this winter too. Interested in getting one of those hot Montana skiffs in your driveway? Stop in for any info in regards to the Adipose Flow.
Successful fly tying night last evening at the store. The regular crew was there in force tying and bullshitting. Streamers, bobber flies, and some techy small summer flies were tied. Fun times. Next Fly Tying Night in America Wednesday January 27 6pm.
Still some cool stuff on the sale rack. Always new and updated fly lines, terminal tackle, winter wear including a bevy of gloves and hats. Your Missouri River SIMMS dealer with Howler Bros, Orvis, and tons of cool Headhunters Logo Wear.
Open daily 8-6pm for shuttles, winter discounted lodging at Craig Trout Camp, and all things trout…
