Fly Fishing the Blue Ribbon Missouri River in Cascade, Montana
A guided Fly-Fishing trip on Montana’s “Blue Ribbon” Missouri River should be on every angler’s bucket list. Montana’s Missouri River is regarded as one of the best brown and rainbow trout Tailwater Fisheries in North America. It’s home to a rich and varied insect life, great scenery and a wild trout population that is off the charts!
Self-sustaining combined population of 3000 rainbow and brown trout per mile.
Deli-style lunch on the water provided.
Comfortable lodging in double occupancy rooms included.
The Missouri River Can Be Described As The World’s Largest Spring Creek!
From the Holter Dam down to the town of Cascade, the River’s population of trout varies from 5000-8000 combined brown and rainbow trout over 10 inches per mile in the upper stretch (Holter Dam to Craig) to 2500 per mile as the river reaches Cascade’s outskirts. The Missouri River Montana Fly-fishing experience is best noted for Spring Creek-style Dry Fly fishing, insane and technical nymphing action, and awesome streamer fishing.
