anyone swinging flies on the MO

Going to be in the Helena MT, area for a few days around Memorial day weekend. I know most of the rivers in MT are blown out and muddy due to run off. Has anyone done any recent swinging of streamers or soft hackles on the upper stretch of the Missouri below holder Dam down to Craig??

Any intel would be appreciated

I bet the rainbows are coming out of Canyon Ferry Reservoir and are backed up at the Toston Dam. Take the Toston Dam Rd off 287 south of Townsend to get to river left. The dam is 53 miles by road south of Helena. If its not blown out, this can be a spectacular fishery about now.
