Montana Fly FIshing in February. #8 Dries!!! 2/20

 The Missouri River was great again from the dam down to Craig, Montana.   Even I managed to get a day on the water with one of our guides and the fishing was epic.  Taking turns on the oars, we landed about three dozen trout in the 6 hours that we fish.  We nymphed for about 15 minutes and then switch to a dry/dropper. A few fish came to a smaller streamer as well.  One brown trout absolutely crushed a foam skwala dry. This has got to be the first trout caught on a skwala this year! I think he was a bit dim. To top it all off, we were the ONLY boat on that stretch. Rare.  But the wind kept most of the other clowns home watching daytime soaps. Guided trips start in a week and I can't wait to get in the boat again.


  1. That was an awesome day on the Mo', let alone in February. Great fun fishing with you, Predator.

    BTW - Why aren't we fishing today?

  2. We should be out today. Wednesday Bitterroot? Thursday Clark Fork? Let's get 'er going!
