Cold morning on the Missouri

Since October 4, the state of Montana has felt more like December than mid-October.  Sideways snow, 10 degree mornings and freezing guides.  Guide trips were starting around 11 or 12, soup and lunch by 1 o’clock and hitting the ramp by 6.  Yesterday, the weather finally broke and the sun came out.  By the end of the week we are supposed to see 68 degrees……what a weird Fall this had been.

Nymph fishing with flies at 3-6 feet has been great. The dry fly fishing has been pretty darn good, but no big #18 Baetis….yet……okay there have been a few, but not many.  Water temps are still hovering around 53 degrees, some folks think that water temps have to hit 48-50 degrees for the big baetis. They’re right.  Streamer fishing has been spotty, but good.  If you stick with it, you will get some nice fish.
