Just heard from friend and fellow guide Ken Stock about the Missouri river. He fished over the weekend around Craig and had a fantastic day. The fish were eating red worms and midges. One fly that Ken said was the ticket, a red rubber ribbed worm pattern on about a size 6 Scud hook.
So look to the tail waters for what sounds like some great winter fishing.
Come and join the angler crew on sunday afternoons from 12 to 3 for good stories and coffee. Bring your tying supplies and sit with us in the shop and tie your favorite fly. Learn from fellow tiers the short cut you have always been looking for to get that fly finished so you can get to the water a little faster. We also will have movies playing, like "Drift" or "Rising the Ghost".
From all of the crew at Bozeman Angler, Happy Holidays. With the cold weather the fishing has been a little on the slow side. Nymphs would be the way to go when you get out and find a hole in the ice. Everyone have a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and a Happy New Year.
