Fishing Report

Summer is Back by Popular Demand

​Fishing Report is officially back online after a lengthy Covid-19 hiatus. The Missouri River took a big jump this week, drowning the few PMD's that tried for an early go at things.  That said, a few fish where caught on dries and flows will likely stabilize for the weekend (fingers crossed). The good news is the river is up a bit, this will h...

This morning Kaleb landed several tro...

Take a Kid Fishing

​As school districts all of the great state of Montana shut their doors for the COVID-19 Coronavirus, local students find themselves stuck at home, bored and alone.  What a great opportunity to take a kid fishing, get outside and learn some new skills. Schools will be closed from Monday 3/16 to Friday 3/27, during this time, I am off...

March Madness

​Crazy weather brought some crazy good fishing last weekend. You'll never guess this but the fish were in the slow and deep water, liked a bugger and ate it often. Big thanks to Joel Silverman for bringing a rotten banana with him, strong move Joel. Weather is looking sub par for this coming weekend, might be a good weekend to stay home and wa...

Leap Day Luck

​Good friend and Columbia Sales Rep. Jason Schuyler (  joined me for a  day on the Missouri last Saturday.  The weather was February-ish and the trout apparently like them a leap day.  We caught several nice browns and a good mix of rainbows on a three hour tour of the MO. Fish were in the slow deep wat...

Team Eodice Strikes Gold

Capital High Legend Chris Eodice fished the deep water last Saturday, this produced some nice trout.  With his Father Paul on the oars, Team Eodice found some quality Missouri River Rainbows.  Slowly stripping buggers in 5 to 7 feet of water produced solid action throughout the day. The Capital High Fly Fishing Club will be back...

Warm Weather Brings Hot Fishing

​Temperatures were well above average last weekend, this was bad for skiers, but great for fishing.  Sorry skiers.  We gave The Missouri a go on Saturday, fish were more active than usual, this resulted in higher numbers to the net.  Fish were deep-ish, 5 to 7 feet, slow water tanks.  Best bet was the crawdad bugger, orange...

Let It Snow

Finally getting some decent snow around here, hope this holds up.  The forecast for Saturday 2/15 is partly sunny with a high of 38F.  Sunday looks partly-chancy as well, to that I say, late start, lots of coffee and lets give'er a go....   


Unbelievable performance by Pat Mahomes and Company last night, I never thought this day would come. Weekend fishing went as follows:  Saturday was good on the Missouri, until the wind blew 100 mph.  Fish were holding deep in the slow water, if you got down to them you did well. Sunday was not only windy but cold as we...

Capital High Fly Fishing Club
I guess it's Winter, but hard to tell at the moment.  Sounds like we can expect 60 F on Saturday, get out early, wind will be a factor in the afternoon. February is historically the worst month to fish in Montana, that is why they made it only 28 days long.  This would be a leap year, so we will enjoy 29 days of the F-word month, oh ...

See you on the wat...
