Missouri River - Below Holter Dam

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

For the numbers game, it's hard to beat a pair of nymphs below an indicator. However, noses are showing for Tricos in the am and Caddis, Terrestrials, PMD's in the pm and evening. When there's clouds overhead, streamers have been working really well, despite the weeds in your way. So really, their is not just one technique that will get you into fish. Mix it up as conditions dictate and you'll have fun fooling fish for a good part of the day.

Seven-day forecast 

Great weather this week as we are starting out cool and damp for M & T, giving us some much needed moisture and water temp reprieve and then back into the warm stuff by Weds through the weekend. You'll want sunscreen and rain gear! A Buff will keep the sun off your skin and your hat on your head when the wind blows. 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.
