Fishing Report for the Missouri River

The Missouri River between Craig and Cascade is in excellent shape with good water levels and water temperature. A lot of fish are being caught on caddis dry flies, early morning and late evening. Nymphing has been good too. Fish really haven’t started hoppers yet. Everything seems later this year because of high water in the spring.

Fishing below Holter Dam for about ten miles has been good. They are biting only on nymphs. Beyond ten miles it hasn’t been good for fishing.
