August is one of the most underrated months to Fly-Fish The Missouri River.The Reason being is over the last several years Montana Streams experienced below average snow pack which relates to low and warm water during the month of August.During the last couple couple of Seasons we experienced average to slightly above average snow pack which translates to good flows throughout the Montana Fly-Fishing Season.Both the 2019 and 2020 Season on the Missouri River during the month of August.2021 is shaping up to be the same way.I would Book Now and experience some exceptional Missouri River Hopper Fishing.

Conditions wise things here on the Missouri River are day to day you have to get out there and see  what is going on.Between Guided trips I’ve been getting out with friends or fishing Solo.All enjoyable of course.The Hopper bite can be off and on you have to commit to it if in doubt We have thrown some streamers with good results.To shake things up I have  ventured out to some small streams south of Helena in search of Brown Trout which can also be rewarding.Despite the Covid Crap This Season has been a blast.
