You can buy separately floating body or Intermediate.

I think a 5wt would be a better choice than a 6wt for the Missouri.

You really don't need to throw big streamers to get into the big rainbows there.
Size 8 to size 2 will pretty much cover it.
I think throwing big articulated streamers will actually really cut into the numbers of fish you get into without increasing the average size of the fish you do catch.
The guys at Headhunters will pretty much tell you the same thing. They've written about it on their blog a few times.

I think a 5wt is a bit more satisfying to fish with up there.
