Bighorn River Fishing Report: wind, wind and more wind

The past four days of guiding has been a challenge to say the least. Besides the wind we had every kind of precipitation you could think of; rain showers, freezing rain and snow all of which were coming down sideways. As far as the fishing goes the dry fly fishing took a back seat to indicator fishing. There is still quite a bit of loose aquatic vegetation floating throughout the water column and soap creek has been adding color to the lower river. Between the floating moss and wind wade fishing was more productive than boat fishing.

Current Water Flow: 2200 cfs

Fly Patterns: Cream midges, tan sowbugs, orange scuds and dark baetis nymphs
