The Mighty Mo Welcomes a Packed House to Caddis Fest
I was on the Missouri River last year this same weekend and it wasn't near as packed. This year Craig, Montana was a busy place for the weekend. It is a great place to spend a weekend if you can and a fun time to do so.
I was only there for less then 24 hours, but that was enough fun for me. It's always a good idea to have your spot early for this weekend if you want to camp. A lot of people stay in Helena as well, but most stay near Craig or Wolf Creek to enjoy the local establishments and the parties going on.
It was a slow day fishing on Friday and from what they fly shop folks told us, they put 70 boats in at Wolf Creek and even more like us were putting in elsewhere. It was a busy day on the Missouri and fishing was hit or miss like I said. I only landed one otherwise we were just attempting to compete with all the other anglers. It's just a fun time though, to meet others, to learn more and hopefully catch some fish.
They have a parade and even do a river clean up as well!
