Missouri River - Below Holter Dam

Tip of the week 

Missouri River trout are now moving into winter mode. The fish will moved from fast water to slower, deeper runs. Long line nymphing is the way to go. Fire bead sows, zebras, and pink lightning bugs are great patterns for winter fly fishing. Streamer junkies are doing OK too -slow that retrieve down though. Medium to light sink tips cast into slower water are working well. Black and olive streamers seem to be producing fish. However, don't be afraid to throw something flashy. The fish are where you find them.
