Bighorn River Fishing Update 5/10

Flows have stabilized right around 4500 CFS and the fish seem to be liking it!

The Baetis showed up big time in the cloudy weather yesterday and fish were looking up later afternoon.  We’ll see what the sunny days bring, but the hatch should keep getting better and better!

Nymphing has been rock solid out of the gate in the morning.  Sowbugs (Carpet Bugs, Jellybeans, Firebead Rays and Softhackles) size 14-16 in the mornings and then drop on a small Baetis nymph or Perdigon in the afternoon and it should keep you busy
