Tricos are popping up near Craig in huge numbers. Caddis and hoppers have also been on the menu. Fishing a caddis in the trico hatch can make a big difference in the number of fish you catch. Now is the time to hit the Mo before the month of August brings pickier fish and decreased hatches. Terrestrials can be good as well. Ans, beetles, and hoppers are on the menu especially if you are fishing lower on the river.

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.
