Missouri River Fishing Report at Holter Dam

Fishing Report + Rating

4/5

June 4, 2019

The Missouri is fishing well.  The dry fly bite is there with midges in the early morning (Griffith’s Gnat or Tucker’s Twiggy), a few BWO’s are still around and we are starting to see some PMD’s.  It should get better from here on out with the river dropping and the water warming up.  Nymphing has been really good with mayfly nymphs like Micro Mays, PT’s, Bubbleback PMD’s and Green Machines.  Caddis nymphs are starting to come into play too.  Other nymphs to have are San Juans, Sow Bugs and Scuds.  Streamer fishing when the clouds are out is another option if you want to swing for the fences.  Muddy Buddies, Sparkle Minnows, Krystal Buggers, Chou’s Fortune Cookie and Smoke N Mirrors.  The Dearborn is dropping fast and by the weekend you should be able to fish below it without a problem.

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