Missouri River Fishing Report – 9/25




We should see some rain down here this weekend. This could mean great things for the BWOs. Usually it takes some nasty weather to see big hatches of them. Bigger stuff is still working, like caddis, hoppers, and bigger mayflies. Smaller stuff is great, like tricos and pseudos. Nymphing is both good and bad, but certainly worth your time to get some bigger fish. For dry flies, use cripples, standard Adams parachutes, midge clusters, elk hair caddis, parachute baetis, baetis button emergers, small flying ants, and hoppers. For subsurface, stick with sow bugs, czech nymphs, caddis pupae, scuds, small PTs, lightning bugs and micro mayflies.
