Tricos are still out in great abundance and bringing up fish for a number of hours in the morning. Get out early to find the hatch and then fish the spinners until lunch time.
Cloudy days are bringing out black caddis, which can extend the dry fly fishing for a while. If it’s sunny, the caddis will start emerging in the middle to late afternoon and bring fish up as the sun intensity starts to drop.
Nymphing is excellent with small black nymphs such as zebra midges, pheasant tails and various caddis pupa.
The pseudos are still about in good numbers also. The dry fly opportunities with them are early in the morning on the spinners mixed in with the Tricos. Fishing an emerger, such as a wonder nymph, in the afternoon can be productive.
Cool weather and rain has really slowed the hopper bite down. If you want hopper action, float from Bighorn access down.
