Missouri River Fly Fishing Report
August 27, 2018
Spend more time on the river this fall. Start now. High temperatures won't get out of the 70's this week. Snow. Yes, snow, shall fall locally in the Little Belt Mountains for the first time since last spring. Parts of the state are under a winter weather advisory. Summer seems to have slipped away.
Excellent describes the entire fishing scene in Craig, maybe not for business, but certainly for you. Very few anglers challenge the river for at least another week when the fall season traditionally ramps up. Top notch Trico hatches bring pods of big fish to the surface daily. Hoppers and Ants work well. Floating weeds deliver very little pain. If you're fishing dries, they don't get in your way. You'll be fishing dries. Water flows and temperatures are perfect, 4400 CFS and 63℉ respectively. Your opportunity to enjoy top notch fishing with the river to yourself slips away soon. Get after it.
