Missouri River: Warm and sunny conditions have made the fishing a bit technical midday. That being said, you can still catch big bows all day long on zebra midges, baetis nymphs in size 18 and smaller, and tiny little pink stuff. Despite the sunny weather, streamer fishing has been pretty good. It's not a bad time to head to the Mo if you're into stripping big junk as the sun comes up or breaking out the spey rod. The fishing isn't bad, but expect it to get even better when we get overcast skies.
