Missouri River

The Missouri River begins at the junction of the Jefferson, Gallatin and Madison which are three outstanding rivers in their own right. This junction is rightfully named Three Forks. The Missouri River, located in Western Montana, is well known for its outstanding hatches and hard fighting trout. A diverse population of insects and “spring creek” like water below Holter Dam makes it an outstanding dry fly fishery, arguably one of the best in Montana. Large in size, it spans 300 feet across in many areas. This is absolutely one of my favorite rivers to fish in the state. It can be very technical if you’re looking for a challenge. We fish near the town of Wolf Creek and Craig, MT. Roughly a forty five minute drive north of Helena in the morning.
