Spring Fishing on the Missouri River

spring fishing on the missouri

Matt Morris, his girl Laura, and I took a drive over to the Missouri below Halter today. We were let down by the weatherman, who called for 68 degrees and sunshine. Instead we encountered fog and low clouds with temperatures barely breaking the high 40's. Our attitudes weren't glum for long though; fortunately our day was warmed up by hot beads, the choice fly for countless rainbows (several pushing 21").  We soon lost count regarding the fish in hand, not that we were counting anyway.  Productive runs offered as many fish as a person could catch.  The fish were hot too, fighting, jumping, and putting on a show. -Miles
