End of August Bighorn Report

End of August Bighorn Report

August 28, 2018 1:30 am Published by Leave your thoughts


It’s been an interesting past few days with daytime temps ranging anywhere from high 50’s to mid 80’s.  This has resulted in some inconsistent fishing, but there are still some moments of greatness out there.

Our Tricos have been a different story each day.  Some days good, some days not so good.  No need to be out there at first light, as some days fish aren’t on them until 11 or so.  The upper 3 is still the most consistent, with the first few miles below 3 a close second.  We did see some of the elusive Mahogany spinners the past couple days. We have some awesome patterns for these in the shop for the season, so stop on by.

Under the surface nymphing has been somewhat consistent, while streamer fishing has not.  A wide variety of patterns are working right now including:  Carpet Bugs, Tan Rays, Tungteasers, Pseudo Wondernymphs, BH Pheasant tails and LBF’s.  

We will see what September has to offer.  The Tricos should make a second appearance, but no guarantees. Our lodging, rental boats and guide schedule is filling up, so if you plan on coming over, give us a call as soon as you can!
