Fishing continues to be pretty good here on the Mo. Not our best spring ever, but not too bad either. River flows continue to climb gradually, around 8700 cfs today. This is more water than we have seen in at least a couple of years. This has made the fishing a little different. Again, not bad, but not great. Dry fly fishing is a little tougher than we would like this time of year, although there are still a few fish to be had on top. But the deep nymph has been the best bet most days. Above you can see Mike holding a great rainbow that was fooled by a small mayfly nymph.

River flows should continue to rise over the coming days/weeks. But fishing will continue to remain strong on the Mo, as always. Give us a shout if you would like to come out.
