Missouri River Fishing Report at Holter Dam

Fishing Report + Rating


April 22, 2019

The Missouri is big over 10,000 CFS.  When it gets this big you don’t have much for dry fly fishing. It’s been all sub-surface this spring.  Nymphing is still the key to getting into fish.  Make sure to get your rig down withs some split shot and fish deep.  Nymphs to have right now are Tailwater Sowbugs, Pink Amex, Pink Czeck, Pink Scuds, Psycho Mays, San Juans and Jig PTs.  Streamer fishing is a possibility with flashy patterns like Flash Minnows, Smoke N Mirrors, Tandem Shiners, Fruit Roll Ups and Zonkers.
