Bighorn River Fly Fishing: Tricos, Pseudos and Baetis

Bighorn River Fly Fishing: Tricos, Pseudos and Baetis

October 24, 2012 6:07 am Published by 2 Comments

A calm cloudy day yesterday provided for all day dry fly action. The tricos hatched for approximately six hours. Around lunch time, the pseudos started up and a little later in the afternoon, some fall baetis were mixed in and then the tricos decided to finally start dropping. There are a few tan caddis still around also and black caddis in the upper three.

    guys, has the lake turnover (i.e. weedfest) started yet? I have a trip planned there Nov 2-4, hoping we miss it by then. Have not heard whether that is underway. Thanks Mike

      The lake has yet to turnover. Currently we have the best fall fishing conditions we have seen in quite sometime. See you in early November, the dry fly fishing should still be going as well.
