Missouri River Montana Hopper Action

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.

Ontop of the stellar Fishing on The Missouri River there are some decent small streams to fish in the area.Of course they go nameless.It’s a great way to spend a day and seeing some great country.My friend Heather and I headed out to check out a stream she has access to.It was well worth the visit as numerous Browns and a Cutthroat ate our foam Hopper offerings.Perfecto !

The Missouri River is  regarded as one of the best Tailwater Fisheries in North America.It’s home to a rich and varied insect life ,great scenery and a wild trout population that is off the charts.We believe that Fly-Fishing Montana’s Missouri River should be on every Angler’s Bucket List.

From The Holter Dam down to the Town of Cascade the River’s  population of trout  varies from 8000 combined  brown and rainbow trout  over 10 inches per mile in the upper stretch(Holter Dam to Craig ) to 3500 per mile as the river reaches Cascade’s outskirts.The Missouri River Montana Fly-fishing experience is best noted for Spring Creek style Dry Fly fishing,insane and technical  nymphing action and awesome streamer fishing.

Although The Missouri River fishes year round the timeframe we focus  in on is from  Mid May thru June.The rainbow trout spawn has finished, the fish are out of the winter water and feeding more aggressively and the hatches are strong,providing great dry fly opportunities.While other rivers can be high and dirty from run-off,due to its Tailwater characteristics The Missouri River never blows out from dirty water.A huge bonus for those seeking a great fly-fishing trip in June.
