Bighorn River Fishing Report 4/29

Fishing has been really good the past few days since flows have stabilized and water temps are up a bit.  It’s been busy, but it’s a big river and plenty of places to fish!

Nymphing has been stellar with big Sowbugs (Red Bead Carpet Bugs, Red Bead Rays, Cotton Candy, Pink Bead Carpet Bugs) the whole river.  Keep your bugs clean as there’s a bit of moss below 3 Mile.  Longer and deeper rigs have been the norm these days.

We’re seeing more and more Baetis, so good dry fly fishing is right around the corner!
