Missouri River Fishing Report at Holter Dam

Daily River Report

April 29, 2016

Fishing Rating:



Did we mention that fishing has been good here?  Well, it has and it won’t stop for a while.  The weather has been perfect and it looks like this weekend will be no different.  (Although fishing here in Missoula, will be good too)  BWO’s have been making a great appearance as well as March Browns in the lower section.  BWO’s are more prolific, but if you can find the March Browns the fish are really keying in on them.  Carnage Drakes, Flash Cripples and P-Adams for the March Browns.  Extended Bodies, Flash Cripples and Sparkle Duns for the BWO’s.  Nymphing has been good with mayfly type stuff like Green Machines, Micro Mays, PT’s and Tailwater Tinys, as well as Czechs, Pink Scuds and FB Sow Bugs.

Streamer fishing has been up and down, but if you stick with it you’ll be rewarded.  Circus Peanuts, Beldar Rubberlegs, Sparkle Minnows, Kreelex and Skiddish Smolts.
