Missouri River - Below Holter Dam

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Basic winter fishing stuff: Double nymph rig with Pink Lightning Bugs, Scuds, Worms, & PT's will get you into fish pretty easily on most days. Also, slowly stripped or swung streamers is another way to catch fish in the Winter -usually need a sink tip or sinking leader. There can be dry fly fishing with midges but it's usually only for an hour or so in the afternoons when the wind isn't blowing.

Seven-day forecast 

Crazy "warm" for January, this week will see highs all above freezing -and into the 50's. There will also be some wind associated with this warmer front but that's not unusual for the MO.
