Missouri River Fishing
Montana Fly Fishing Guides and Bull Stock Media just returned from our 2nd annual Missouri River trip and we thought we’d share a few photos with you. The fishing and weather conditions really couldn’t have been better.
Overcast skies, rain, light winds and ridiculously good hatches made for some of the best Missouri River fishing we’ve seen so far this year. Blanket hatches of Baetis (Blue Wing Olives), March Browns, Callebaetis, Midges and even some caddis made for some of the best dry fly action we’ve had in years on the Missouri River.
During the mornings we spent time nymphing while the trout were still trying to make room from their feeding activity the day before. As the day went on we’d start to see a few selective trout feeding on mayfly spinners and by early afternoon pods of fish began eating the emerging duns. While the trout were selective on the presentation they were fairly eager to eat a number of different dry fly patterns from emergers to duns to spinners.
We’d like to thank Andy and Jacey Watson from Bull Stock Media and Andy Watson Photography for a fantastic Missouri River fishing trip and some spectacular photos!
