Missouri River - Below Holter Dam

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

There is NO safe wade fishing now as flows are over 10K. (Extremely few places to "shore" fish or step in knee deep.) Best technique now is fishing from a boat (Drift Boat, Raft, Kick Boat). We've been catching most fish on deep nymph rigs (7'-10' bobber to bugs) and streamer fishing (stripping slow). Some dries late in the day.

Seven-day forecast 

Remember, you need a 2018 Fishing License if you haven't gotten one yet!

Sign up for on of our Fly Fishing Schools this Spring in our Helena shop. Call or stop by our Downtown Helena Store for more info or to put your name down for a class!

Open Tying every Saturday in our downtown Helena shop! Come on down, bring a vise (or demo a new one) and hang out, shoot the breeze, twist up a few flies -we'll show you some cool patterns, drink some delicious Firetower Coffee Roasters coffee and snack on sweet treats that Larry "The Urban Legend" provides! It's a good time!
