Bighorn River Update 8/19

We just had another heat wave here on the Bighorn and it was a hot one!  It put a damper on the afternoon fishing, but morning has been good.  We’re seeing some grass growth throughout the whole system, but the Upper 3 definitely is seeing the bulk of it.  Guides are spread out from A to Mallards, so pick your favorite stretch and go!

Subsurface we have been doing well with Frenchies, Hare’s ears, various Perdigons and a few Carpet Bugs and Orange Scuds still.

A few fish are still looking for the hoppers, so that’s a good option, although a day to day kind of deal.

Tricos are around in the morning hours, but not tons of fish on them.  We’re seeing some nice single fish eating them.  Psuedos are around in the afternoons, if you want to torture yourself.  Black Caddis and a few BIG Tan caddis are around as well during the evening hours.
