Our Fly-Fishing Season up on the Missouri River is in full swing, and the fishing has been good and gets only better as the Season progresses.Caddis and P.M.D.’s have started and the fish are eating them.
We have high hopes that the Canadian Border will finally be re-opening sooner than later but we are expecting by August at the latest.We are expecting things to get busy once the announcement is made.Due to the cooler temperatures “Up North” August is a good month to plan an Alberta or British Columbia Fly-Fishing Trip and it’s easy to get to.Stay Tuned !

Missouri River Fly-Fishing in August
Missouri River Hopper Eater
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.
