Missouri River: This tailwater is fishing great. Lots of anglers are fishing the itty bitties, you'll want to have Trico's for the morning hours. You should find a number of fish targeting the morning spinner fall for an easy meal. A lot of these spots can be found down the middle of the river. As it warms up A hopper with an ant or beetle trailed 2 feet behind is a good rig. Or running a small zebra midge or ray charles under a stimi. Get a good cast and let it drift the entire run. Dead drifting a small sculpin or crayfish along the weed beds might take a few eager Brown's as well. A black streamer is also a good option early and late, and can also pick up a few fish midday. Weeds have been an issue for some. Sometimes this is when fishing a streamer about a foot under the surface can keep you just under them.
