Big Horn River Flow Reduction

Big Horn River Flow Reduction

The bureau is reducing flows this afternoon to 13,000 cfs.  While this is still a lot of water it is a significant drop from 15,500 cfs. The army core of engineers in an effort to reduce flooding throughout the Missouri River system wil be reducing flows on the Bighorn to 9,500 cfs by Saturday as well.

Water temperatures should continue to climb with the combination of very warm summer air temperatures and water coming from the top of the dam.

Look for the fish to continue to move into the faster water at the heads of runs, riffles and drop offs.

Sowbugs and san juan worms should continue to dominate the fishing in the near future.  As we move into July start looking for pmd, yellow sallies and caddis to be around as well.
