Posted by Merle Ann Loman: The evening of May 8 and all day May 9 Jack fished with Dixon W. Benz, II on the Missouri River. Once again, they stayed at the Prewett Creek Inn, http://www.prewettcreekinn.com/. By the looks on Dixon's face, I am pretty sure he had a great time. I know Jack did.
This is a really nice brown trout caught by Dixon. There were a lot of fish caught these two days by Dixon and Jack from the drift boat and by wading.
To the right is another photo of Dixon. He is wade fishing near Jack's drift boat. You can click on the photos for a larger view.
This last photo is of a brown trout caught by Jack on a number 14 Blue Winged Olive (BWO) pattern. If you compare it to the seat box, you will notice it is quite large. I am told it was 23 inches plus. This beautiful fish was released right after the quick photo-op.
After fishing with Dixon, Jack spent a day exploring more of the MO (Missouri River), stayed the night in Butte and the following day traveled to the Big Hole River to fish with David Baltimore and Marshall Bloom. The weather on the Big Hole was chilly and the water big, but they had a good day. More to come on the Big Hole River soon. The water level is dropping and he is planning on more trips there this week.
