My buddy and I got 4 day Hall Passes for Memorial Day, so we hooked up my drift boat to his pickup and pop up camper for a weekend of fly fishing. With the run off occurring on most rivers, we took off towards the Missouri River with plans to fish some local ponds. The first day, we camped below Hauser Dam and wade fished. Since it was Friday, we had the place to ourselves, which is very unusual for this spot. The weather was absolutely gorgeous, no W and about 65 degrees. The midges were hatching, with the occasional fish rising to them. I caught about 8 real nice fish that day and managed to get a picture of this one. After a great day of wade fishing, we moved on over to Craig, MT for a float down the Mo. We launched a 5:30 am on Saturday, to beat the holiday crowd. We started hooking fish within 100 yards of boat ramp. We caught a nice mix of rainbows and brown, along with this nice bow. That afternoon, we drove over to an area that has some great Stillwater fishing. That evening, we did a little pre-scouting hike. I started fishing around 7:00 am, and caught this one shortly there after. I continued to have an excellent morning and despite setting my buddy up exactly as I was and even switching spots, he never caught a fish. I ended up hooking 10 and landing 8. I have done very little Stillwater fishing in my life, but have to admit it was very relaxing. The fish here were just amazing. This could very well be my favorite fishing picture. No wonder these fish were so big. It was their mating season and they were all over the place squawking and carrying on. The fishing remained good until late in the evening. I never fish or hunt without thanking the Big Man for my blessings. As I was staring around enjoying the sights and the sounds and reflecting on what a great day it was, this came floating by in the water.
