Helena Recreation Report by Bob Ward’s Sports and Outdoors (4.10.15)
Spring Turkey starts on April 11th. The Spring Bear season begins April 15th. If you had a great season make sure to bring pictures down of your successful hunts or catches and post them on our bulletin board.
Missouri River: Plenty of great spring fishing to be had on the Mo’. Subsurface fishing and streamer fishing is the ticket but there are also plenty of midges out there that are getting picked off when the wind dies down. For dry flies try throwing Hi-Vis Para Midges, or pretty much any midge, or Griffiths Gnat. For nymphs we’d recommend throwing some Lightening bugs or Czech nymphs. Streamer fishermen should stick to minnow or muddler type streamers.
Little Black Foot: We’ve had a plenty of customers heading over here to get in some great early bird fly fishing. Nymphing is the ticket this time of year so bring some bead-headed Pheasant Tails and black or olive buggers you should get some good bites in some gorgeous country.
