Missouri River Fall

The time has finally come to Montana: Fall.  River bottoms are full of color, elk are bugling in the mountains, and big browns are sipping Baetis and Pseudos on the Missouri.  The hot long days of summer are far behind us now, replaced by cool calm days and low angled sunlight.  No hurries this time of season; things are on a slower pace and the fishing is always good somewhere.  Especially the Mo.  Three days of long delicate casts is a dry fly fisherman’s dream; hunting fish like these on 5x and #18 mayflies holds a special place to those in the know.
