Missouri River Fly Fishing Report
July 20, 2018
July 20, and we're done talking about river flows. 6180 cfs. At 208 CFS, we probably won't be doing any more Dearborn River shuttles this season.
Wade fishermen settled upon the area, but haven't quite found the nirvana they're looking for. Where is it? They have to look close. They're not easy to see and they're not easy to get. But, they are there. PED Spinners, Spent Caddis and Trico Spinners have something in common - they're hard to see and the trout are eating them.
Hot weather prevails, but promises to lose a little of its grip. Starting Sunday, temperatures are forecast to reach into the low-to-mid 80's rather than the mid 90's we've experienced lately. Wind, likewise moderates.
Expect the river to be busy this weekend. Not everyone will be in a drift boat.
