Bighorn River Flyfishing: Water Coming Down Soon?

Inflows at the head of Bighorn Lake are falling, and it’s only a matter of time before they begin to reduce the flows in the Bighorn River. Currently, inflows and outflows are approximately the same – 10,000 cfs. While the nymph fishing has been outstanding, lower flows create more wade fishing and dry fly fishing opportunities. I was on the river yesterday, and the fishing was good. Small grey sowbugs (size 16 & 18) worked well, and most of our fish were taken from shore. We took a 22″ brown out of the Corral Island hole! The river below Bighorn Access continues to fish well, although a thunder storm yesterday afternoon might affect water clarity down there. A few PMDs were seen yesterday, but not much in the way of rising fish. HH
