The leaves and vegetation are changing to their dramatic fall colors. So are the Bighorn River brown trout.
The brown trout spawn will be upon us in the next few weeks and they are starting to show it with beautiful colors and big jaws on some of the males. They are big, healthy, strong and eating aggressively, up top and down below.
Tricos and caddis still providing the main surface action. Below, it’s getting to the point to put flies just to see what won’t work. A red brassie was a killer fly the other day. We put it on to see if fish would eat it and it caught more fish than the “hatch” bug we had been doing well on.
Fall Weather is on the way, with the colder weather look for the “summer hatches” of tricos and caddis to fade away, and pseudo’s and fall baetis to pickup. Look for the streamer fishing to continually get better as well.
Come enjoy the fall colors, both above the water and below.
