Flows have been up and down on the Bighorn, and at this point, we are looking at the later.  The river is scheduled to be at 2500 CFS by the next couple of days and should stay at that level throughout the remainder of the Summer season.

The good news is the fishing has been really goodRead more...

The flow on the Bighorn has settled in at 4000 CFS.  The fish seem to be pretty happy about it and overall the fishing has really picked up.

It appears that the fish are not dialed in on the tiny (20 and 22) Midge and Baetis nymph patterns as much as they were, and are turning in favor towards bigger SowbugsRead more...

After the massive deluge the states of Montana and Wyoming received this past week, we are seeing the results on our end.  Flows will be on the rise daily and finally at 3750 CFS by Friday afternoon. There’s a really good chance for even higher flows in the near future.  Expect the river to be carrying some ‘salad’ down its entirety throughout the week, but this should also help clean it out a bit.  Read more...

The Bighorn River watershed got some very timely precipitation over the last week or so and as a result flows will bump up to 3750 CFS by end of Friday and remain there for a week or two.  This should expedite the moss break up we’ve already started to see and flush much of it downstream which should only help the nymph fishing.

Good to see some smiling clients get out on the water….FINALLY!  It’s been a busy couple weeks around here at the Angler….FINALLY!

Fishing has been consistent and mostly a nymphing game right now.  Water temps remain in the low to mid 40s with the Baetis and midges singing their swan song after a fantastic spring, surprisingly still seeing some rising pods of fish on the right overcast, cooler days.  Read more...

We always look forward to late Spring in the Bighorn Valley for one thing – Awesome Carp fishing.  Yes, you read that right.  Carp fishing on Bighorn lake is one of the most unique experiences one can have in the world of fly fishing.  If you want to test your casting and fish hunting ability, this is where you need to be.

Water levels have come up just a bit the past few days to around 2350 CFS.  The increase in flows has helped out the fishing overall, but it’s not a gimme out there right now.  We still have a good majority of rainbows in the system finishing up the spawn.  Read more...

We’re finally heading in the right direction as far as water is concerned.  The river this past week got a lot lower than what was expected and definitely put some stress on the fish.  Good news is we’re up to 2250 CFS as of yesterday afternoon and the fish should have a few more spots to shift into.

We lost another Bighorn legend yesterday.  Brad Downey was a well known guide on the Bighorn and just a great guy!  We wish his family peace and hope Brad is enjoying some margaritas with the fishing gods!

In honor of Brad, I am featuring the Wondernymph this week.  This is a must have Baetis pattern and is a very cool and unique pattern overall.  Read more...
