Missouri River Ranch Fly Fishing Report

June 1st, 2022

The Missouri River is legendary even by Montana standards. With trout averaging 18 inches, and fish counts regularly exceeding 6,000 per mile, it’s easy to see why the Missouri is considered one of the greatest fisheries in the Western United States.

Fly Fishing Update:
As we welcome June, it's safe to safe that this was the best May in recent memory. With water temps hovering at 50°F, consistent flows and great hatches, anglers were experiencing success all over the river. Montana fly fishing doesn't get better than this. Our hospitality intern, Christen, found success her first time fly fishing. While casting dries at a pod of fish, she connected with the beautiful rainbow pictured above! The Dearborn river is floating and fishing well- if you have never floated the Dearborn, consider next May/June! Its scenery and technical waters will not disappoint.
Dry fly fishing continues to ramp up. Caddis are peeking out in greater numbers, and prospecting with terrestrials still produces. The main event we are all waiting for, is the PMD hatch. Based on sightings in the canyon section, it might kick off a bit early this year!

Nymph fishing has fluxed, but still is the most productive method. While most fish are being caught on Perdigon patterns, a few days called for scud/sow bugs when the fish became a bit more reluctant.  

Streamer fishing continues to produce as the conditions allow (focus on more overcast days).

Drop us a line and we hope to see you soon!

The Flavors of Summer are Here!
With better weather on the horizon, the team at MRR has been hard at work to create unique experiences.

Our first outdoor dining of the season took place on a lovely 80°F evening, where all our guests joined us for the MRR BBQ!

Guest love Chef Patrick's passionate cooking. From smoked brisket, cowboy-cut ribeye seared on an Argentine grill, smoked chicken thighs and potato salad, to Chef Jodi's unbelievable cheddar/chive biscuits... there's no better way to enjoy our 160-acres than dining under the stars. 

Longtime guest Nancy can't visit MRR without a stop at the S'mores bar! When weather prevented her from visiting the firepit, she was delighted by our teams surprise creation of an indoor S'mores experience!
