Fly fishing on the Missouri River continues to be very good right now. We are still seeing excellent midge and BWO hatches daily. On bright sunny days, you can still find fish up and feeding, but it takes a little searching. Add a few clouds or weather, and the river comes alive with rising trout.

With warmer weather the past few days, we have started to see good numbers of caddis on the lower river. Fish haven’t keyed in to them just yet, but there are plenty flying around. There are also decent numbers of march browns buzzing around as well, with some fish eating them.

It looks like we have some weather moving in over the next handful of days. This will keep the BWO hatches rolling thick. I expect the dry fly fishing, nymphing and streamer fishing to be outstanding. This could prove to be the last big push for these spring time insects. The next run of warm days should warm the water and put an end to the BWO’s. At that point, we will be looking for the caddis to really get going, and waiting for the PMD’s to show up in another couple of weeks.

All in all, the fishing is quite good right now. If you would like to book a trip, CONTACT US and we can get you all squared away.
