The Bighorn continues to be in full spring swing and fishing well. A few more folks are showing up, but plenty of great water to fish right now.
Here’s the lowdown on what’s happening on each stretch:
A to 3
Good streamer fishing and boat nymphing. The wade fishing spots have been a bit more limited up here. As far as bugs, there are a ton of midges, but just a few Baetis. Expect a few more BWO’s in the next week up here.
3 to B
Great fishing all around. Cloudy days have good numbers of Baetis and Midges in the afternoons. A few more wade options open up down here.
Just coming into shape. We have had a ton of water coming out of Soap and Rotten Grass Creeks the past 6 weeks, so it really hasn’t been an option yet. Not a bad option for streamer fishing this next week and keeping away from the crowds.
TOP FLIES THIS PAST WEEK:
Nymphs – Caviar Scud, Cotton Candy, Firebead Rays (tan, pink 16-18), Carpet Bugs, Soft hackle Rays (Tan, Grey 14-16), Wondernymphs, Rootbeer midges, Green weenies, Tung teasers.
Streamers – Smoltzilla, Pete’s Bugger, Lil’ Kim’s, Sparkle Minnows, Thin Mints
Dries – Smokejumpers, Dill’s Dun, Para Adams, Quigley’s Clusters, Transitional Midge, Schelle Cripples.
