Get to the Bighorn while you still can! The Trico fishing is still very solid, in fact has been going non stop for the past month. The fish are getting a bit pickier and the morning bug window has been getting just a bit shorter, depending on the day, but is still the best Trico fishing we have seen in years! The Psuedos have showed up in large numbers on the upper 3 and even have made fish change their minds in the middle of thick Trico spinnerfalls to make them their food of choice. Have some tiny parachutes (22-24), and other small junk that you can’t see and you’ll be set. We are seeing some really great fish this late summer/early fall, so if you want to stick a good one on a dry, now is the time to do so.
Still a fair bit of grass in the surface, so for the nymph crowd keeping your bugs clean is a necessity. Standard rigs and short rigs (3′ – 5′) are getting plenty of hookups. Stick with Wire worms, Wine Chenille worms, SH Ray Charles (tan, grey 14-18), Tungteasers (black – 20), Sunk Trico Spinners, Carpet Bugs (14-16) and you’ll be good to go. The river is fishing well from Afterbay to Mallards, although a bit grassy right out of the gate. It’s been good!
The Streamer bite has turned on big time as water temps remain up there and there are A LOT of fish in the skinny water. No need for sink tips now. Just line up your favorite 6 or 7 with a Lil’ Kim, JR’s conehead, Sparkle minnow or Screamer and you’re good to go. Definitley a lot more chases than real eats, but it’s still enough action to keep you going.
