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 !

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.

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 !

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.
