Bighorn River High Water Update

Bighorn River High Water Update

The water went up 3,000 cfs yesterday and is now flowing at 10,000 cfs.  While this flow level sounds intimidating, the nymph fishing will remain productive throughout this years high water period.  Look for the fish to really start moving into the banks now at this level and really try to key in on the slowest water.  A good rule of thumb is if you can re-row your boat in an area there is bound to be fish there because the water is slow enough.  It is often best to just float through the steep gradient, faster flows and key in on the softer edges and slow inside bends.

Sowbug patterns will remain the most effective with worms and scuds also producing.
