Time to Book Your Fall Fly Fishing Trip to the Missouri River Montana

Time to Book Your Fall Fly Fishing Trip to the Missouri River Montana

It is coming up quickly. The fall months of September, October and November will be here shortly.

Just getting into summer? Me too, but…but it will soon be over. And these wonderful long days will be a thing of the past. Seasons change and so do the bugs, the daylight, and the Missouri River.

So, are you gonna be here this fall?

Now is the time to figure that out. September is one of our better nymphing months. Not too good not he dry though. Not good at all. You can toss the terrestrial with some success. You can find a few fish rising on Trico’s in the front end of the month for a couple hours a day. But the month centers around the nymph. And it can be epic.

Cooler nights and cooler days with the weeds leaving the river too to make the nymphing more fun! Looks like September is about half booked. So get yourself and your buddies together and get some dates on the books. Check out our comprehensive lodging site here www.CraigLodging.com for all kind of river properties

October is many anglers favorite month. It can be really quite good. Morning nymphing with afternoon BWO hatches. So some good dry fly fishing and some good nymphing too. And the streamer comes into play as well. And, the two handed Trout Spey is in full effect again. So lots to do in October.

October is also half booked. So get it together to get lodging and guides for October soon.

We have a few special trips planned for those two months as well. Check out the Clearwater Steelhead School with Whitney Gould, Tracy Allen, and Zack Williams hosted by Headhunters with sessions September 11-15 and October 2-6. Our Advanced Fly Fishing School has two sessions in October this year. Why not bring your game up to the next level! Availablility October 5-8 and 19-22. Check out all the stats and give the shop a call for additional info on either one of these Headhunters Trips!

November is the sleeper month. It is when we get out fishing again. Yes, the staff and guides love November. A quiet river with BWO opportunities, the short leash nymphing rig is on fire, and swinging flies through runs is divine. A few groups have made November their home and we agree that it is one of the better times to be on the Missouri River. It fishes well up until the Thanksgiving break. Then, it’s cold!

So get it to ether and plan your fall fishing trips even if it is not to visit Montana’s Missouri River. But if it is, get cracking!

We enjoy the fall period. Shorter days, cooler nights, great fishing, fewer folks around and lots of fly fishing fun! Call us today 406-235-3447.
