3730 CFS @ Holter - The Missouri is in good shape right now with stable flows and good clarity. Lots of midges and baetis on the water with dry fly fishing picking up every day, especially when it's overcast. The flows are great for wading at the moment. Nymphing has been very productive, especially on the upper river. Streamer fishing has been decent as well.

Recommended Flies:

Zebra Midge #16
Mini Mo Czech #16
Rocky Mtn Mint #18
Sparkle Flag BWO #20
Kreelex #6

3760 CFS @ Holter - The Missouri River flows have been holding pretty steady recently, which means good things for the fishing. While the water is considered a bit low, anglers have been picking up fish on nymphs consistently. Focus on BWOs, midges, and even some March browns. On overcast days, the BWOs and midges can bring some heads to the surface. And don't forget to try streamers. This is a great time of year for landing big fish.

Recommended Flies: 

JR's Conehead Streamer #6
K's Kreelex, Copper/Gold #6
Beadhead Czech Nymph, Pink #16
Two-Bit Hooker, Pink #16
Batwing Emerger, BWO #18
Last Chance Cripple, BWO #18

3580 CFS @ Holter - The Missouri River continues to fish better and better as we move further into April. Dry fly fishing is picking up but your best bet is still nymphing. BWOs are around on the overcast days, but there are still more midges than anything. Look for that to only pick up over the coming weeks. Streamer fishing has been spotty.

Recommended Flies:

BH Czech Nymph #16
Holo Midge #18
Firebead Sowbug #16
Parachute BWO #18
JR Conehead Streamer #6

3420 CFS Bl. Holter- The Mo' is one of the better spots to fish right now. The best fishing is still below the Holter Dam. Nymphing with pink and black bugs works well over this way. The fish are still stacked in the deep slots and runs. If swinging flies is your game this is a great place to fish.
