The “Mighty Missouri” is a “must fish” river for experienced anglers where stealth and delicate, accurate casts with tiny match-the-hatch dry-flies that compete with thousands of the ... morereal bugs, and a drag free drift are required to catch the huge, wary and finicky Rainbows and Browns rising to Caddis, BWO’s, PMD’s, Trico’s, midge, and a wide array of terrestrials.
When there are few, or no fish rising, nymph or streamer fishing is hot from a drift boat or raft. When flows are low-moderate, there are lots of wade fishing opportunities. We fish the Missouri from Holter Dam to Cascade, a 30-mile stretch of river designated a “Blue Ribbon” tail water fishery.
The Big Blackfoot River, made famous in the movie “A River Runs Thru It,” is a gravel bottom, boulder-strewn “Freestone” river running from the Continental Divide near Lincoln, down ... morethru the Blackfoot Valley where it joins the Clark Fork River at Bonner, Montana.
This is one of the most beautiful, scenic rivers in Montana and it is hard to keep your eyes on your fly when you’re surrounded by breathtaking scene of pine forests and towering cliffs.
And the fishing? Awesome! Even first time beginners enjoy great success, as the aggressive West slope Cutthroat is not as finicky as some trout. The prolific hatches of huge Salmon Flies, Golden Stones, big Mayflies, Caddis, and a smorgasbord of terrestrial insects work these opportunistic feeders into a fly-grabbing frenzy.
Most fishing is done from a raft using big dry flies on a short line in fast, broken, gin-clear water filled with Rainbows, Browns, and the huge Bull Trout, better known as Dolly Varden.

The review copy of John Gierach's latest effort (All Fishermen Are Liars) arrived Saturday, and while I'm just getting started, I admit to a little concern.
