Join us this fall for three exciting days of fishing on the Missouri River in Craig, Montana. October is a great time to catch the legendary fall hatches on Montana’s Missouri River!
There are a lot of trout in the Missouri River. In fact, there are over 8,000 trout (rainbows and browns) per mile in the upper river. The crazy thing about this statistic is that they only count trout over 12″, unlike trout counting practices on the west coast. The average size fish are 16-17″ with plenty of fish going 19-23” to keep you on your toes. Part of the reason for these chunky fish is that the Missouri is a tailwater, it flows from the bottom of a dam. This keeps flows consistent and water temperatures ideal.
Craig is a small town with one restaurant, one bar, and three fly shops, located 40 minutes north of Helena, MT.
We rent cabins right in town. They’re right next to each other, plenty of space to hang out. And walking distance from the fly shop and dinner.
We are working with our friends at Headhunters Fly Shop and their top notch guide staff will be guiding us all three days. Non-guided options also available. Contact us for details.
We will be cooking you an amazing breakfast each morning, as well as providing beer, wine, sodas, appetizers and dinner in the evening. Lunch is provided by the guides on the river.
Blake & Grant will be along on the trip to cook some killer food and make sure your trip is as memorable as possible.
October on the Missouri can be great weather in the 60’s. It can also be very unpredictable. Hopefully we don’t have snow but for those of us that are used to playing in the Northwest, we know how to be prepared for unpredictable weather! Average temperatures for this time of year are usually mid 50’s but be prepared for anything.
$1599 per person for 4 nights of lodging, meals, and drinks, and 3 days of guided fishing. A $500 deposit locks in your spot. (2% fee on credit card payments). If you decide to fly into Helena instead of drive we can possibly pick you up at the airport. Not Included: Fishing license, transportation to/from Montana, and gratuities.
