Bighorn River Fly Fishing: All Day Dry Fly Action

Bighorn River Fly Fishing: All Day Dry Fly Action

October 27, 2012 10:58 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

It may be starting to sound a lot like an infomercial, but this is the year the trico hatch will not stop. Clouds, sun, calm, wind… tricos just keep happening. Sometime around lunch, the pseudos start to get going for the second wave hatch and the fish stay up and keep eating.

How can you beat that? Big fish, lots of fish, greedy fish….

The Bighorn is the river you want to make it. If you aren’t into dries, the nymphing is still spectacular and the streamer fishing isn’t half bad either. Mornings are a little slow but the afternoon makes up for the morning.

Trico emergers, duns and spinners are all taking fish. During the pseudos, small baetis duns and cripple patters are money.

Lamson reels and MFC flies make for a great day on the Bighorn

The TFO BVK performed exceptionally well
