Here are some recent photos of a great day on Montana’s Missouri River chasing lake-run fish. Montana Angler guides Brian McGeehan, Hank Welles, Bill Buchbauer, and Doug Casey chased browns that move out of the lakes to spawn, as well as the rainbows that follow to eat eggs of whitefish, kokanee and browns. Swinging streamers and nymphing egg patterns can produce some great tugs. The streamer fishing is best at dawn and dusk, and nymphing egg patterns produces best at midday. When the weather cooperates, November can produce some awesome fishing in the Big Sky state!
