During certain times of the year and primarily in the spring and fall, we’ll spend a few weeks on the mighty Mo. The Missouri is basically like a huge spring creek and the techniques and opportunities for big fish on small flies make this one of Montana’s most famous rivers. Extraordinarily fertile and loaded with biomass the Missouri hatches are incredible.

Since this is about 6 hours from our base here on the Kootenai, we require at least a minimum of three day trips. When on the Missouri we base out of Craig, Montana and work with the various lodges and outfitter friends and colleagues we know over there.

Our annual Missouri Spring Fling is not to be missed and offers a great early season trip for those of you hankering to get on the water during the early season. During mid-May through mid-June the Missouri River fishes very well and we stay in Craig the entire time. This is a terrific experience and books quickly.
