It’s official, the Bighorn River is up and running. After the final decision to end the shutdown, the Park Service removed the barricades yesterday morning at both Afterbay and 3 Mile access points.
And the fishing? It has been pretty awesome. Increased flows the past week have set up new hiding spots for trout. We are still seeing great Black Caddis fishing as well as Baetis making their main fall appearance. Streamer fishing has been excellent with white being a hot color and yellow not too far behind. Nymphing is always good and has been steady with Soft hackle rays (pink, grey 16-18), Epoxyback sowbugs (14-16), FB Pheasant tails (18-20), Black Quills (18-20), Tung Teasers (18-20) and the list goes on.
