Monday Fishing Report
A short and sweet Monday afternoon fishing report for m the info source here on the banks of the Missouri River Montana. Kelly Waring with this beautiful Brown Trout fishing with Guide Brett Matula. You rule, New Breed Chick Kelly!
BWO’s Yes. Lower, and middle river action. Afternoon of course is the key. Be on the lookout as the sun passes the daily half way mark. Cripples, Emergers,. But cripples really. Stop in and see the differing colored posts we offer for your BWO fascination.
March Browns? Sort of. BE there, and be ready. Then capitalize. Parachutes are the deal here. Or of you posses a cripple use it. Again, HH is your fly source. Ask 7wt for his tip on soft hackled March Browns. PS: We got ’em.
Mother Day Caddis. I have not seen any. But I hear rumors. My favorite fly for the Mo Day Caddis? An X-Caddis. Yes sir.
Water Flows: About 8K. Nice. The river is in great shape. It looks great. Fantastic. Clean. But, the Dearborn is rising.
Water Temps: 46F. Good for many of our topwater buddies.
Dearborn River is 1000cfs. And looks like it has crested. For the time being. Fish below it? I would. But you will have to make that decision for yourself.
