The Missouri River has long been considered one of the very best tailwater fisheries in the country. Fly fishing on the Missouri River is catch-and-release. You’ll see brown trout and rainbow trout, from 23 to 30 inches long, throughout our April to October season.

The Missouri River

The most famous part of the Missouri is from below Holter Dam to Cascade. The river below Holter Dam is a large tailwater with cold and abundant hatches. This stretch has average fish counts of over 4,000 fish per mile and is consistently a great place to fish in early June when other rivers are high from runoff. The Land of Giants section of the Missouri River, running below Hauser Dam into Holter Reservoir, has become one of the most popular fisheries in Montana. It is only accessible by foot or jetboat with a US Coast Guard licensed Captain at the helm. For a visual map of this section of the Missouri River, view a detailed map via the button below. Our lodge is located at the Mountain Palace Launch Access.
