Fishing Report + Rating


March 23, 2023

The Missouri is fishing good.  It looks like winter is coming back this weekend, but the fish will still eat if you’re up for the drive and weather.  Nymphing has been the way to go, except for a few midge and streamer eaters here and there.  Hot beads, Pink Scuds, Ray Charles, Tailwater Sow Bugs, Zebra Midges and some BWO Nymphs.  Fish are still in winter water and change your depths to find them.  Streamer fishing slow and with a sinking leader or a sink tip will get you into some nice fish.  Change up your streamer until you find what they like.  Leave the big stuff in the box and look for streamers with a jigging action or at least weight in it.  Kreelex, Sparkle Minnows, Skiddish Smolts, Mason’s Junior, Space Invaders, Fruit Roll Up’s, Buggers and Mohair Leeches.
