2021 had the second-highest estimate on record for rainbow trout along the Craig section of the Missouri River, a state fish biologist said.

That stretch of the river, which runs from Wolf Creek Bridge to Craig, saw an estimated 6,611 rainbow trout 10 inches or longer per mile, Jason Mullen of Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks told people Wednesday at a meeting of Pat Barnes Missouri River Trout Unlimited held at Montana Wild in Helena. That more than doubles surveys from the past two years.
