Missouri River Fishing Report

Current Conditions:
The Missouri near Craig and Wolf creek is a great option this time of year. Caddis and PMDs are pouring off the water bringing large pods of fish to the surface. Expect a lot of other anglers. Nymph fishing is always productive on the seams and in some of the riffles.

The Month Ahead:
The Mo slows down a bit in mid summer but the nymphing is always good and terrestrial fishing is often an option once the aquatic hatches run their course by mid July. Tricos start showing up in late July. We tend to prefer other waters in the mid summer months but the trout are always there.

Long Term Fishing Forecast:
The Missouri is a tailwater and always produces. By mid July the trout have seen a lot of flies and the river can see a lot of traffic. By late summer the trico hatch still brings trout to the surface. This is a bucket list river for many anglers and even though we prefer to fish it in the early summer a day on the Mo is always memorable.
