Missouri River Fishing Report March 20th 2019

Missouri River Brown

Missouri River Below Holter Dam 4800 CFS

Water Temp 34 F

The MO has been fishing good and some dry fly action on the right days ( midges ). Nymphs have been working best anything pink, also scuds and zebras. Steamers are also working well, a slow strip seems to work best. Be sure to check out are New Under the Counter Flies out.

Not all of the Boat Launches below Holter Dam are open. The Ramp at the dam at this time is still drifted in, Wolf Creek bridge to Mid-Cannon is OK, the rest of the river is ice jammed up. it will take a little time and good weather for these jams to clear out. Gates of the Mountains is not open yet.
