Fishing Report + Rating

3/5

May 18, 2020

The Missouri is starting to fish well finally, but with some rain we will see what happens with the Dearborn and Prickly Pear.  Right now we are seeing good dry fly fishing below Craig with Caddis, BWO’s, March Browns and even a few Skwala’s hanging around.  Come prepared with an assortment of dries like X-Caddis, BWO Flash Cripples, P-Hazes and Adams.  Nymphing up by the dam and really the whole river has been good.  Mayfly nymphs are starting to be an option, but your standard sow bugs and scuds have been the best.  Streamer fishing this week should be great with the clouds all week.  Smaller streamers like Jewel Thief’s,  Baby Gongas, Mason’s Juniors, Laser Legals, Mini Dungeons, Complex Buggers and Wooly Buggers.


Give us a call or stop by the shop for up to the minute fishing reports.
