Missoula’s fall fishing season is in full swing right now.  The weather gods have been kind, gifting us with cooler and mostly cloudy weather for most of the month.  The fall mayfly hatches of Tricos, Mahagony Duns, Hecubas, and Blue-wing olives are coming off daily.  Good casts and true dead drifts are rewarded with dry fly eats from wild trout.  Brown Trout are in pre-spawn mode, and any stretch of any river could give up the fish of a lifetime on any day.  We have been on the river every day which hasn’t left much time to update, so we will leave you with some images of fall fishing in Missoula.
