The Missouri River is fishing great right now. Dry fly action has been kind of tough this last week. Still a ton of PMD's hatching and caddis are out and about. But rising fish have been picky and spooky. It's important to make the first cast count. The nymph fishing has also been great. PMD nymphs, sow bug patterns and worms are all hooking their fair share of fish.
Keep in mind you can shop all of our flies in our online store for both shipping and curbside pickup. You can also order hand-picked fly selections for the Missouri River before you head out and we'll have them ready for you to pick up!
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.
