Bighorn River Fishing Update June 26


Guide Phil and Veteran Rick enjoying the goods of high water on the Bighorn

The Bighorn is rolling along at 16K CFS and fishing remains excellent!  Water clarity is good, above Soap Creek but there is some sediment in the water with the higher flows.  Please be careful rowing out there.  There has already been one boat sunk and hopefully no more.

WORMS are on the menu and the fish are taking full advantage of them.  San Juans, Squirmys, Wire worms, they’ll all work!  Put a bunch of 3/0 shot on and you should be finding fish.

Streamer fishing has actually been spotty, as good as the river looks for it.  The fish seemed glued to the bottom and not willing to move for much.

We just finished hosting our annual trip for Warriors Afield.  Lots of fish were caught and new stories were made .  Check out their great operation!
