Bighorn River Fly Fishing Hatches Getting Stronger

April 14, 2012 6:57 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

The dry fly fishing on the Bighorn was already pretty good so far this spring but the mild weather has really brought on the midge hatches and the baetis are getting a little more steady and reliable too. CDC baetis, CDC midge, Sipper baetis, CDC transitional midge for surface action.

Nymphs haven’t changed much: sow bugs, midges and baetis nymphs. Cream, olive, root beer and black midges are productive. Black quill and killer baetis nymphs are also working really well.
