Looking at snow pack levels are normal for this time of year.Normal is good and our guess based on current snow pack conditions we will have good flows throughout the up and coming season.Our Top picks are my two favorite tailwaters which are Montana’s Missouri River and Alberta’s Bow River.
The Missouri River should be in prime shape by June 1st and The Bow River by June 15ish but play it safe for the Bow River and do not (provided the border re-opens ) book anything until July 1st.Contact Us and lets plan a trip !
We had a great season in Montana on The Missouri River and area.So much fun that I cant wait until next season however in the meantime there are dogs to train,Birds to be hunted and come Spring flies to be tied.Enjoy thee pics and we hope to see you in Montana next Season !
This has been a great year for Hopper fishing on Montana’s Missouri River.With luck it will last well into to September.The days start out fishing droppers under Hopper patterns and once the trout start looking up they come off.The “eats” dry from subtle sips to vicious attacks forcing anglers to be on their toes and forever being ready.Fishing the banks can be productive and classic however mid river produces the most results a game of wait and see.The best hook ups are the ones that come out of the “skinny water ” the fish don’t like to be “busted ” and go ballistic when hooked chances are Anglers lose the fight but W.T.F. thats what Fly-Fishing is all about.
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.
