Missouri River - Below Holter Dam

Tip of the week 

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're feeding on Baetis (BWOs), Midges, March Browns & some Caddis. Sometimes they look more at one then the others so be ready with all these bugs. With no weeds in the river and the water warming, we are also doing pretty well on streamers. Se really, the best technique is just go get out there and throw a fly in the water!

Seven-day forecast 

Typical spring weather right now; cloudy, chance of rain. Getting warmer and brighter as the week goes on. Enjoy the sun and low winds! 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.
