The Missouri River is fishing pretty good especially around the Craig area. Nymphing has been best with your typical Springtime flies, Hot bead Sowbugs, scuds, Pheasant Tails, BWOs, Worms, Zebra Midges, Lightning bugs, and crayfish. Streamer fishing has been hit or miss but it is always worth a shop. Fish a Black Double Gonga, JJ Special, or White Mini Peanut Envy. With the blue wings hatching, watch the edges of the river carefully for heads. Fish a 9ft. 5x leader to a size #18 BWO cripple for the best topwater success.

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.
