Missouri River Montana Fly-Fishing

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.

Missouri River Hook -Up

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 2500 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.
