All kinds of people around this weekend fishing Montana’s Missouri River. A bunch of anglers.
Why? The warm weather. Temps in the mid 50’s kept most interested all day long. Saturday the wind let down and remained dead calm most of the day. Remarkable. Windy in the am, then perfectly dead calm and overcast the rest of the day.
Sunday. A touch breezier! 59.6F is what the mercury topped on Sunday. Still warm out there! Water off color below Prickly Pear Creek. For miles. Check it out before putting in @ WC or Craig. It settles below the Dearborn River? GO figure. Dearborn frozen still. LPP running brown.
Today Monday. Nice and quiet, winter style. The phone is still ringing with 2015 summer guide and lodging bookings.
Looks like nice weather all week ling and into this coming weekend. See here in Craig daily if you are coming fishing or traveling through. We would love to chat about the winter bite.
Techniques? Nymph, swinging, or single handed stripping.
Where? Deep and slow.
Reach? Anywhere Dam to Prewitt Creek. Pelican Boat Ramp is still off limits, unless you got a long rope and 4WD. Dearborn can be sketchy too. The rest are in great shape.
Lots of DEMO Rod action as many are trying several of our Two Handed Rods Demo selection. Top to bottom all you need in the Switch and Spey game for Montana and the west coast Steelhead Rivers. We have all kinds of Spey Lines too. VersiTips, Scandi, Skagit, VersiLeaders, PolyLeaders, and much more for the two-handed angler. The only place to get hooked up on the Mo’!
Craig Trout Camp is on sale all winter long. Rainbow and Brown Cabins for $125/night and the Craig House begins @ $150/2 anglers and $50/head beyond the first two. Beach House and Trout House on a seasonal discount too. Call our crack booking staff today to get in on super deal.
Most of the shelf ice is gone and the shore access is quite easy. A good time to come out and enjoy this mid winter winter break. We will surely have much more winter like weather ahead of us. More snow, sleet, rain, etc.
Shop open daily @ 8am for all your Missouri River needs. The only full time fly shop on the river. Book your 2015 reservation today if you would like to visit the Missouri this year. June and July are almost gone. Honest. September fading. Book today.
Mark, the pelican boat ramp is now doable with a 4×4. By tomorrow probably dry.
Good times were had today on the lower river and a ton of Big Horn Sheep playing on the cliffs…
