Pretty good fishing news for the Missouri River from below Holter Dam thru the canyon section. Fishing has been consistent and steady for hearty anglers.
CFS for the Missouri is about 3600 to 3700. Nice fish are being caught using nymphs, streamers, and some dry midge activity.
My suggestions for nymphs would be pink scuds-#14-18, hot bead patterns-#16 and 18, zebra midges-#18 and 20, thin red san juan patterns-#10-14, and purple glints-#16-20.
Good sized rainbows and browns can also be caught using slender streamers-#8-12. Off white streamers and black leech patterns are working! Try to swing your fly slowly at first and then add a few strip pumps and then stall your fly and repeat.
There is actually a pretty fair amount of midge activity on the river now. Size 18 parachute midge patterns, Griffith’s nat-#18, and even small -#parachute patterns may work during the hatch. Also try dropping a #20 zebra midge about 10 inches or so off the small dry. Forecast calls for pretty good weather next couple of weeks so get out and try the Missouri.
