Bighorn Fishing Report – Early March

Bighorn Fishing Report – Early March

March 5, 2013 11:04 am Published by Leave your thoughts


Getting a few more drifts in before the front hits.

Spring is arriving slowly but surely in the Bighorn River valley.  Air temps are looking up, until yesterday when the weather did a complete 180.  Wind gusts up to 80mph were reported and new snow was found on the ground.  It appears to be disappearing as I write this and we are looking forward to better weather.

So, back to the fishing.  We fished for a couple hours yesterday before the storm cell and it was excellent.  No monster fish, but plenty of healthy, early spring fish that fought great.  We fished the upper river and the fish seemed to be partial towards Zebra type midges.  Reports of red midge larvae patterns have been catching a bunch of fish as well.  As always, our best top bugs included the grey and pink Killer Bugs and Firebead Ray Charles in Pink and Grey.  Sizes 16-18.  Streamer fishing is a bit hit and miss still as water temps are a bit chilly, but should pick up soon.  More fish are looking up for midges too.  We’ll keep you posted.
