Fly Fishing the Big Horn: Midge Fishing Continues

Fly Fishing the Big Horn: Midge Fishing Continues

March 21, 2013 8:33 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

The dry fly fishing yesterday and today continued to be very consistent with lighter winds and moderate temperatures.  The midge adults are rather small right now even for midges.  Accurate and subtle presentations are a must, long leaders and 6x certainly won’t hurt.

Pete guided from A – B yesterday and the nymph fishing was stellar throughout the day. There was quite a few weeds in the water from the pipeline down but it didn’t slow the catching down much. Pink Killerbug, firebead pink ray charles, tungteaser, palmer’s root beer midge and the wondernymph have all been productive nymphs.

We are looking at some less than comfortable weather for fishing this weekend.  If you have the itch to get out in these wintery conditions expect the fishing to still be very productive, especially with nymphs.
