Bighorn River Fishing Update 7/13

Bill with an impressive brown from a couple days ago with Outfitter Pete Shanafelt

Flows are finally on their way back down.  We’re currently at 13K CFS and should continue to drop.  Mostly a subsurface game right now, but a few fish are starting to look up!

Worms still dominate subsurface but we are starting to pick up some fish on big Carpet Bugs, Rays and various Sowbug patterns.

Black and Tan Caddis are starting to show up as well as a few PMD’s.  We’re hoping for some good hopper fishing as soon as the river drops down a bit more.  They’re really starting to show up around town.

Streamer folks have been having fairly good success.  Big Articulated stuff has been working well and should continue to get better.

As always, be careful rowing out there!  We have had quite a few close calls already this season and respect the power of the river!
