Conditions : Missouri River: The MO is still cranking up in the 12,000 CFS range. This is pumping. The PMD's have been around and fish have been eating them in the softer water and on the flats. Good patterns over here include rusty spinners, bubble backs, brook sprout emergers, and extended body duns. When the sun hits the middle of the sky, the dry fly bite slows a bit. This is a good time to break out the nymph stick. Using PMD nymphs such as a crack back or small PT is a great way to target fish midday. Once the sun starts to creep behind the canyon style walls, the caddis have been out in full force. An X-caddis is a great pattern to target evening risers! The streamer bite is very minimal, a few fish are curious but not many will fully commit. The Dearborn is not pumping mud anymore so that lower water is in good shape. The water on the MO is crystal clear up near the dam. The fish are holding deep and feeding heavily in the mornings. As the afternoon sun gets high and bright, the fishing slows down substantially. Get on the water early or in the evenings for the most effective fishing.
