This is quite pretty and probably won't get me arrested. This is the Missoula River in Montana, just below the dam. Normally it's full of float tubes, pontoon boats, drift boats, chicks in rubber rings, loud anglers in waistcoats but they've all gone home. I do miss them...

Yep, I am in fact fishing the Missouri and not the Missoula. Well spotted. I'm pleased someone is awake.
