The Mo has been consistent, especially while nymphing. Some fish are up on the surface eating BWOs and Midges but it should just get better, look for some honest fish rising and you should be able to get some good chances at feeding them. For nymphing, San Juan worms, Zebra Midges, Firebead Sowbugs/Scuds, Lightning Bugs, Crayfish, and Tailwater Tinys. Streamer fishing has been hit or miss but you don't know until you go right? I would fish a Sparkle Minnow or a Bow River Bugger out this way. If two handed rods are your thing, then head to the Missouri to swing some soft hackles and streamers. Watch for redds and respect the fish making the effort to revitalize the trout populations for the coming years.
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.
