Missouri River Fishing Report 3/14/2022

Date: 03/14/2022

Current Conditions

The Mo' near Craig will be one of the better fly fishing options. This stretch has been nymphing really well with some good Midge fishing on top as well. For sub-surface, San Juan Worms, Zebra midges, Rainbow Warriors, Scuds/Sowbugs, or smaller Perdigons will get it done. Streamers have been worth a shot but is definitely a day-to-day game. Spey fishing is also a good idea if you are wade fishing and want to reach some of those harder runs out in the middle.

    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.
