Missouri River Chicken Trip 06.03.2013

The Chicken Trip departed early this morning leaving us in the pouring rain.  Fishing with this group of anglers is a highlight of our season and we hope to see them once again next season.   Greg and I can’t thank you enough…….

On the way back from Helena there was a light skiff of snow in high country.  Rain has been falling all night long and is supposed to for the rest of the day, but then a warm spell is headed our way for the rest of the week.  Sun will be good for the caddis, which have been around from time to time, but we need a short stretch of hot weather to get them cranked up. The fishing on the Missouri has been pretty darn good to absolutely stellar with nymphs.  A dry fly game is there, but not everywhere.  The big browns are cruising around and we caught a few fish like the one above over the past few days.  Just think what this fish will look it in October……..by then it could be a legit two footer. Rainbow trout are eating subsurface with a vengeance.   They are sitting in fast water and running away with the fly.  It’s been a ton of fun.
