Fly Fishing Montana
by Brian & Jenny Grossenbacher (No Nonsense Fly Fishing Guidebooks)
The Missouri River from Canyon Ferry damn to Hauser lake although short, enjoys productive popular spawning runs in the spring and fall for rainbows and browns. Be prepared to share this busy stretch with fellow anglers also in search of trophy trout. Scuds, San Juan Worms, and bring egg patterns are the most productive patterns. Please wade carefully to avoid spawning redds. Always land fish as quickly as possible, and handle them carefully to promote the health of the future trout classes.
Types of Fish: Brown and Rainbow Trout, Carp, Walleye, Northern Pike, Small-Mouth Bass, Whitefish. This fly-fishing chapter describes the "where, when, and how" for fishing in this area. It includes a full-page map and information on the known hatches, suggested equipment to use, the best flies to use, season, limits, nearby accommodations, and camping.
