Back in Bozeman after the last couple days of my MO season for 2015. The heavy rains from the proviso week put a lot of fresh water into the Missouri from all of the tributaries. Additional releases from Holter Dam have added more water to the river as well. It is still low and easily wadeable for most folks. The little bit of color to the water seemed to keep everyone above the Dearborn, which meant that the lower river was pretty much ours, only saw a few boats the three days I was up there. The Worm bite had gotten really good and fish were starting to move into some of the new buckets and holes created by increase flows. Lots of BWO's a few March Browns, and the Caddis will explode as soon as they get a few warm days in a row. The dry fly fishing is there to be had, but the nymphing has been so good…it's hard to take the indicator off. We did finish the day up with a double, one on a dry and one on a dropper (two anglers). Look forward to being home for awhile.
