Blue Wing Olives Have Arrived!!
Well, one of the best things to see a sure sign of spring is the emergence of BWOs. Seeing as I run the business from my home and I live just a half mile away from the Missouri River here in Great Falls, you know that if I am seeing them here, you bet you will see them on the water. The past couple of days have been in the 70+ temp range, our first warm days of the year. It will cause more snow melt and high waters on the river, but that shouldn't keep you away. Remember
Missouri River Fishing Report
The spring thaw and spawn are upon us. Both good and bad news. With the thaw the waters are high and swift, so if you are wading out there, be careful. That being said, fish the slack water, submerged islands or slow runs, the fish will there waiting. With the spawn coming or already here, the trout won't be picky on what you toss at them. If it looks like an easy meal, they will take it, so why not try a big dry fly. Other than that, heavy streamers will work. Nymphs
