he Missouri is running at 4,070 cubic feet per second and the water is 57 degrees. Skies are partly cloudy and there isn't much W — we hate to write the word — and the fishing really doesn't get much better than this. The weather forecast calls for partly sunny skies with temperatures in the mid- to low 50s.
With big game season opening on Saturday, bird and duck and goose seasons already open, if you are a fly fisher, you better get out there.
The baetis hatch continues and the fish are hungry.
Meanwhile, here is a look at reservoir conditions:
Canyon Ferry: Rainbow fishing slowed throughout the reservoir this past week. Anglers fishing from shore report that worms and marshmallows have been somewhat effective at Pond 4 and around the Silos. Boaters trolling gold and black crank baits, wedding rings and cowbells around White Earth, Goose Bay and Confederate picked up a few rainbows. Walleye fishing was slow throughout the reservoir, but anglers continue to catch a few yellow perch around the Silos and Pond 4.
