Strategies, Techniques and Tips:
The Brown Sculpin,  White Belly sculpin and Articulated streamers are always great
streamers to use on this river. The Missouri River has a good population of sculpins.
Various species of Blue-winged olives hatch mostly on cloudy days.
Scuds are available year-round.
It is almost alway best to fish a tandem Midge rig under a small strike indicator with the
midge lava as the bottom fly and the midge pupa as the top fly. Fish the adult midge
only when you observe trout feeding on the surface.
Aquatic worms are working.
Pale Morning duns are hatching.
Spotted Sedge Caddis are hatching.
Green sedge caddis are hatching.
Carpenter ants are working.
Japanese Beetles
Sandwich hoppers are working.
