The Bighorn River has been fishing great with hoppers over the past few weeks and should continue until our first hard frost. Look for the trico emergence to pick up as we move towards September as well.
I think the real surprise this summer to some, is how well the Bighorn has fished with streamers. With the past few years of high water, fish recruitment has been very high each year and there is a ton of juvenile fish in the river. The big fish are taking notice and finding easy meals. Anglers who have caught on to this have been handsomely rewarded. A few streamer patterns that we really like are zonkers, delektable screamers, shimmer minnows and anything articulated.
