Bighorn River Fishing Update 8/26

Flows have dropped down a bit and are currently around 35oo CFS.  Fishing has picked up overall, but there are some odd days where it just isn’t happening.  Not quite sure why.. It’s a good time of year to fish with a guide!

We’re still seeing some fish on Tricos in the morning hours.  Not any pods, but some nice fish.  Black Caddis are around some evenings, although not super thick.  Starting to see more big Tan Caddis below 3 Mile as well.

If you’re nymphing, think pheasant tail/caddis style patterns.  Frenchies, CDC PT’s, Hare’s Ears and a variety of buggy jig type flies are working.  A few fish are being caught on Sowbugs and Scuds too.

The Grass is starting to show up, so keep your bugs clean!  Other than that, the water clarity is good and temps haven’t been too bad.
