Conditions : Missouri River: The Missouri has had cooler temps and fishing has been good. Moss is still making fishing subsurface tough but doable. To avoid the moss fish up close to the dam. Hoppers, mayflies, and emergers have all been working along with streamers. The hopper fishing has been ok but not quite lights out, hopefully as August continues to roll by more and more hoppers will find their way into the MO. Fishing with small tailwater flies will almost always work up here, ray charles and other Missouri staples will work but since there is a good bit of moss fishing on top may be the way to go. Try Micro mayflies, RS2's, Red head stepchild, Military mayflies, Green machines, Juju PMD's, Indigo Child, Sow bugs, and Split case nymphs in small sizes(#'s 16-22). Streamer fishing has been good with this cooler weather, sink tips and flashy kreelex's are getting it done along with other large patterns. Fishing up by the dam is always a reliable choice but other fishermen have figured this out too, so get out early and get your spot. Beating the heat is key right now and fishing these smaller nymphs is a great way to do it. If your nymphing and your indicator moves at all set the hook! Eats are soft and subtle. Trico fishing in the morning can be productive with good hopper fishing throughout the afternoon. If you are Trico fishing remember smaller tippet and fly sizes are a must along with delicate presentations. People have also been successful with dry droppers. More hoppers will continue to show up as August rolls by. Sticking with the dry flies can be good when moss makes nymphing and streamer fishing frustrating. As with most other rivers fishing in the morning and evening has been best.
