Missouri River: The PMD fishing has kicked in big time. Hatches and spinner falls are occuring daily. Besides having a healthy amount of caddis and PMD patterns make sure to have some small chubbies too as they have been picking up fish. Down below Craig is getting good Caddis hatches and they are spreading out and moving upstream each day. The caddis are best on the warm dry evenings just before dark. Nymphing was hit or miss for a few days while the flows were changing, but its back to normal. The normal czech nymphs, sow bugs, and crayfish are all doing well. The streamer bite is slower than normal, but patterns in olive should move some fish. The Dearborn is still in great shape too. The fish have started to spread back out across the river. They are being caught in deeper runs with long rigs as well as ther shallow runs where you will need to run a short rig, 3 to 4 feet.
