About the Missouri River

First Cast Outfitters guides on many of the waters in Montana, for a variety of species. But our home water will always be the Missouri. We call Craig, MT “home” for most of our summer months, and for good reason. With consistent flows from Holter dam, epic hatches throughout the year and large technical trout that eat dry flies… there is nowhere else we would rather be.

The Missouri is truly a remarkable fishery. Boasting the highest trout population in the state, over 8,000 fish per mile, and the largest average fish size, around 17″, it offers anglers an experience that they will not find anywhere else. Fish here grow fast and STRONG! It’s not uncommon to have an “average” fish send an angler deep into his backing.

We have 40 miles of amazing tail water fishing at our fingertips on the Mo. This allows us to float multiple stretches of river and give anglers a different look at our water each and every day. Techniques can vary from day to day as well. Nymphing is always a great option for beginners or any angler, or perhaps a streamer on the cloudier days. But the dry fly fishing is second to none.

Prolific hatches of Midges, PMD’s, Caddis, Baetis and of course Tricos poor off the river each year. Pods of rising trout can be seen in every stretch of the river. The experienced angler will certainly get to test his skills. A precision cast, soft presentation and perfect DRAG FREE drift are required to fool these trout.

Special Stay and Fish packages are offered for the Missouri. Lodging can be very hard to come by during the busy summer months. So plan ahead and contact us for help in planning your Missouri River fishing vacation.
