The Mighty MO is fishing well but the flows are still low. Still not a ton of fish rising but if you put in the work you can still get some critters on top. Caddis in the evenings, PMD's in the mornings with tricos getting stronger daily. Spinners are the way to go for both tricos and PMD's. #18 at the largest. Prospecting ant/hopper or caddis rigs have been producing a bit as well. Crowded up top but pretty warm on the lower river. Streamers non-existent until cooler clowdy days. Nymph right down the middle with zirdles, little green machines, zebra midges, and PMD Splitback Shady.
Full Day guided fly-fishing trips are our standard offering and offer the best opportunity to truly get out and experience the fly-fishing opportunities around Bozeman that attract anglers from around the world.
Looking for a quick introduction to fly fishing or only have a few hours to get out on the water with one of our fly fishing guides? A half-day float on the lower Madison is likely to be the perfect choice.
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.
