Early February Bighorn River Update

Early February Bighorn River Update

Our weather is on an emotional rollercoaster.  One day it’s 40, the next 15.  February is the quietest month on the Bighorn, but the fishing can be great.  Just be flexible to pick your days and it will be worth it.

Still a nymph deal for the most part as water temps are at the lowest point for the season.  The main diet for the next while are sowbugs and midges.  Any Ray Charles type pattern with a black or red zebra is about all you need this time of year.  Or, run 2 sowbugs.  We like the Carpet bug/Soft hackle Ray combo the best.

Some fish here and there on dries, but nothing consistent.  Give it a few weeks and the Midges should be doing their thing.

Discounted rates still effect through the end of the month on both guides and lodging.  

We do have a couple more shows this month:

February 17 – Fins and Feathers – Bozeman, MT – Fly Tying presentation

February 24, 25 – Fly Fishing and Wingshooting Expo – Lake Harmony, PA  flyfishingwingshootingexpo.com
