Missouri River Fishing Report 10/9/2021

Date: 10/09/2021

Current Conditions

The Missouri's flows are low, but the fishing is good. It has been mostly a nymphing game here with Zebra Midges, scuds/sowbugs, San Juan worms, small Pheasant Tails, BWO nymphs, Shop Vacs, and black/olive Perdigons. Streamer fishing should be good these next few days with the colder weather and overcast. I would fish a Kreelex, Sparkle Minnow, Olive Peanut Envy, or Black Silk Kitty. BWO's should hatch good this week and that can be a blast so keep your eyes out for pods of fish and use long light leaders to target these fish with small flies. 


Fins & Feathers is a full-service Bozeman fly shop and Montana fly fishing outfitter. Missouri River fly fishing trips are available year-round with our Bozeman fly fishing guides.

    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.
