All....
..

Relaxing back at the cabin from some of the absolute best fishing of my life. The Mighty Mo is fishing as well as it ever has.

Big trout. Mostly Bows with a small smattering of Browns thrown in.

She's flowing at 4200......which is perfect.

Few rising trout right now......but the nymphing has to be experienced to be believed. We're all using different nymphs. The pattern doesn't mean much....
But the size does. Much larger than a 20 and you basically go fishless. #20 Bead head PT is about the only fly you really need.

My largest so far is a bruiser Brown coming damn close to the 23 inch mark......but oodles of 17 to 19 inch Bows than put a bend in your rod and you'd better have plenty of backing......like 100 yards plenty. I've almost been spooled twice.

This much fun should be illegal. More to come when we get home. Three more days here then on to the Big Horn. Hopefully the water in the Horn recedes a bit by next week. See you soon.

I love the Missouri. Usually caddis by this time, they must be close.
