Montana Troutfitters is Bozeman’s oldest fly fishing shop Since 1978

The Missouri river near Craig has been fishing great as usual. Nymphing a smaller pmd/caddis/baetis with your go to frenchie will be most consistent. If you see heads, throw on your favorite pmd/caddis dry fly pattern.

If fishing below the dams get those nymphs deep and think pink with your favorite scud/sow bug. Black leeches have been getting some fish to the net as well.
