This week’s photo is from a section of the Missouri river dubbed the Land of the Giants. It was a special treat for me as one of my long-time clients asked me to join him for a day of fly fishing at Land of the Giants. This particular stretch of river is only accessible by jet boat, and we were guided by Capt. Scott Willumsen. This piece of water surely lives up to it’s reputation as we caught a pile of big rainbows. The canyon is absolutely stunning and the fishing makes it a trip that everyone should experience at least once.
This week’s shot is from the Missouri River. It’s almost that time of year again when we will be spending a good amount of time fly fishing the waters of the Missouri. The canyon stretch is one of our favorites for scenery along with some great dry fly and streamer fishing. The landscape is such a stark contrast from our western rivers that we always enjoy our days on the Missouri River each season.
The Dearborn River is our Saturday Scenic this week. We absolutely love this river. The Dearborn river has a short float season, usually from late May through June depending on the run-off. It is the most gorgeous stretch of river you can float in a single day in the whole state. This fishing is usually pretty good too. Fortunately the Dearborn river isn’t as popular as it could be and we always look forward to getting a few floats in each season.
The Clark Fork River is our biggest waterway and one of the best. Know for its hard-fighting cuttbows, if you want to hear the drag on your reel scream then the Clark Fork River is for you.
It doesn’t get much better than Rock Creek in June, blue skies, puffy clouds, stonefly hatches, and loads of trout eating dry flies!
