2022 Season Forecast

2022 Season Forecast

Angie Rankin with an early season Bow River Brown Trout

Currently The Bow River and Missouri River have been fishing decent.The Longterm forecast is the The Bow River along with other Rivers in S.W. Alberta and S.E. British Columbia are sitting at just over 100% for snow pack.This means we will have good flows throughout the season on those Rivers.

Missouri River Brown Trout

Over the last couple of weeks Montana’s Missouri River drainage has picked up more snow pack than compared to earlier in April.The average sits @ 94 % (give or take)which is good for this time of year and we are excited about it.Overall we are excited about the up and coming Season ! You should be too !

With the Season fast approaching its time to start thinking about planning a trip out west and we have you covered on a lot of rivers throughout.Currently Snow pack for most Alberta and British Columbia Drainages is sitting at 100 % which generally means Rivers will be fishable by July 1st.The snow pack for the Upper Missouri River is sitting at 80 %  this means conditions will be good early (June & July ) but expect low flows for August.Keep in mind a lot can change between now and then but as it stands thats how conditions currently are.

Now that are well into August conditions have finally improved and Hoot Owl Restrictions have now been lifted due to a recent cool down which included lots of much needed rain.The Rivers that we have focused on have been fishing good then due to warming temperatures shutting down.This cool down will now change that and we can expect consistent fishing throughout the day.

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.
