The Missouri has good dry fly fishing right now on days when the wind is not blowing. Calm days bring trout to the surface after BWOs, March Browns, and the ever-present midge hatches. The caddis are not far behind, and the next few weeks should bring hordes of fluttering bugs. Nymph’s are the best bet throughout the day, try small mayfly nymphs, czech nymphs, midges, and sowbugs.
