Missouri River - Below Holter Dam

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

We have been throwing a big dry fly blind or nymphing double nymph rigs, and then looking for pods of fish rising along the way. Changing up that big blind dry to a smaller adams or blue wing olive cripple would be a productive way to fish to those pods. A good double nymph rig to try is a Czech Nymph or Blooms Weight Fly and a small, sparkly nymph (Lightning, Green Machine, Zebra, etc.). Streamers in the morning or evening up by the Holter Dam have been productive as well.

Seven-day forecast 

This weeks we will have temps in the mid 70's and lower 60s and sunny. AMs are cold -sometimes below freezing so no rush to be on the river early.
