General season for Deer and Elk is in full swing and should be better than ever this weekend. The cold weather has the animals moving and sounding off.
Stop on in and gear up for single digit temp.
Please review your regulations for specific details on the areas you plan on hunting or fishing. And make sure to bring pictures down of your successful hunts or catches and post them on are bulletin board.
Canyon Ferry Lake still has rainbow trout that want to be caught. When fishing from shore try using marshmallows or Powerbait. The north end has been producing a few Walleye around 20 feet deep with a crawling harness with worm or try vertical jigging with a chartreuse jig head tipped with a worm.
On the Missouri River the temperature has plummeted and the wind is blowing. Fishing on the big “Mo” has slowed down as a result. Nymph fishing is so-so. If you’re going to use nymphs try throwing Lightning Bugs, Czech nymphs, or Pheasant Tails. Dry fly fishing has slowed down but you can possibly snag some trout late afternoons with a caddis pattern. Streamers are productive, try a strip and pause with zonkers, black buggers, or sculpins. Most of the bugs have been livelier in the evenings so during the day don’t hesitate to have some fun with streamers as well.
