Bighorn River Fishing Report Black Caddis

September 4, 2011 7:04 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

Black caddis seem to be making a second showing. The “typical” hatch occurred in August in the upper two miles of river and not much anywhere else.

Now that flows and water temps have dropped some, black caddis are making a showing downstream quite a ways. Small black or olive nymphs, such as pheasant tails, are working well as pupa.

Psuedo and trico spinners are still bringing up fish in the morning. The clouds of tricos are still pretty thick so the hatch should continue for a while longer.

Light colored streamers are effective in the morning.

The hopper bite is waning quickly but fish are a still willing to take them in faster water.
