Missouri River - Below Holter Dam

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

For a "body count" of trout nymphing is the way to go. However, if you want to have a ton of fun look for rising trout! They are eating PMDs, however, that's not an easy game so be ready to get schooled. Caddis will also bring fish up, especially in the Canyon and down low and are a bit easier to fool on that but they don't always come up on dries so you may have to look around for them.

Seven-day forecast 

More sunny, warmer weather with only 20%-40% chance of scattered showers on a few of the days. Bring sunscreen and rain gear! You can see live weather links on our website on the Streamflow and Snowpack page at www.crosscurrents.com. Of course you can always give us a call in either shop to get an up to the second weather or fishing report.
