Missouri River Fishing Report 1/10/2021

Date: 01/10/2021

Current Conditions

A bit warmer in the Craig area today. If the wind is manageable the fishing in the afternoons could be pretty productive. Nymphing is the best method right now. Fish San Juan worms, Sowbug/scuds, Green Machines, Zebra Midges, and egg patterns. Fish are congregated in the slowwww, deep spots right now so work those spots thoroughly. Now is a good time to start swinging as well. Put on a bugger and swing it through a seem to potentially hook a hog.

    The Missouri River is formed with the confluence of the Jefferson, Madison, and Gallatin rivers near Three Forks, Montana. The blue-ribbon stretches of the river are generally considered downstream in the “tail-water” sections, which are formed below several reservoirs. The best trout fishing section of the Missouri River is the stretch of river downstream from Holter Lake that our guides fish in the spring and early summer. Closer to Bozeman is the stretch of the Missouri River around Toston Reservoir which is a great mid-summer Carp destination that also holds a few large trout seasonally.
