It was an eerie picture yesterday on the Bighorn to see all the access points void of trailers. The pas 3 days of rain has created an incredible hydrological event throughout the area. Flash floods in all the tributaries to the river resulted in water across areas roads in many areas and interstate 90 had to close in Hardin due to flooding. The department of transportation is concerned about other down river bridges failing as well. The crow reservation has declared a state of emergency. The pictures shown are of Soap Creek from yesterday morning, normally a very small creek maybe 10 feet wide where shown.
With all this being said once the rain shuts off, within 24 hours the upper 3 should be fishable. Mountain pocket about 7 miles down from the dam will be next to clear and then soap creek about 10 miles down will be the last to clear.
