Bighorn River Fishing Report: Baetis still going strong

The baetis hatch is still going strong. Overcast days are better but still good hatches that bring fish up on sunnier days too. Small dark midge pupa are also a staple for the fish. The baetis nymphs start getting active about mid-morning and start hatching early to mid-afternoon. With the moss and low water, accuracy and delicate presentation are a must for getting fish on top. Baetis nymphs are still really thick in the river. With the low snow pack, the river most likely will not come up this year and the baetis dry fly action should continue well into June.

Baetis and midges still the main course
