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 !
Channel & Brown Outfitting Company is The only Orvis Endorsed Fly-Fishing Outfitter located on Montana’s Missouri River.Our Missouri River Fly-Fishing Guides are located in the Small and Quiet Town of Cascade Montana,a stone’s throw from the Banks of the Legendary Missouri River.

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.
Lindsey Channel and Channel & Brown Outfitting Company is actively guiding on Montana’s Missouri River.This is a great time to get on the river and cut loose some Cabin Fever.Rates are also very good @ $450 per day per boat ..good thru April.Contact Us and We will make it Happen.
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 !
Overall the The Missouri River is fishing decent but its day to day.Anglers fishing early or staying out late are having the best results.Hopper fishing has been popular,other terrestrial patterns such as Ants have also been getting it done.
The River is less crowed thru the week than on the weekends,food for thought if you may want to dodge that bullet.
The Bow River is fishing good and getting betters its on the drop.Currently streamer fishing is good and early rising Anglers are experiencing decent to good Golden Stone action.It will only get better as the river continues to drop and clear.

Meanwhile here in Montana we have been busy on The Missouri River which also has been fishing good.Hatches of PMD”s and Caddis are getting the fish to look up.Nymph fishing is good and so is the Streamer fishing.
