After this past cold front we have, the Bighorn trout have awaken and started looking up for the arrival of the Fall Baetis.  The cloudy calm afternoons have been very productive and the fish are up.  Don’t expect to see pods like we are used to of past years, but quite a few solo fish gorging on the big duns.

We’re nearing the end of a great, but interesting season on the Bighorn and getting prepared for some excellent late Fall/early Winter fishing.  Overall, it’s a ghost town out there most days but the fish are very willing to EAT!

Nymphing has really picked up and now is a good time to start sticking some of those big fish we have in the river this year as they are in peak shape.   Read more...

It’s getting quiet around these parts, but the fishing seems to be picking up a bit more each week or so.  Flows are down at 2800 CFS from the Afterbay boat ramp repairs, which is another story, and should be there until sometime this next week, where they’ll likely bump back up to the 3200-3500 range.   Read more...

Fishing is starting to pick up just a bit on the Bighorn.  Low night temps have helped cool the water a bit and the fish seem to be a little more interested in eating.  The crowds are down for the season and the weather is great!

Subsurface fishing is the way to go.   Read more...

The Bighorn trout continue to eat, despite the slightly off colored water and grass!  The crowds have thinned out for the season and Fall weather is on the way.

Nymphing with Big Orange Scuds, SH rays in tan and grey, sunk Trico spinners and Carpet bugs has been steady, mostly on the upper river.   Read more...

It looks like one more hot streak of weather these couple of days and then we’re headed into the direction of Fall.  Fishing has been a bit challenging overall, but there are definitely some opportunities out there.  The main crowds of the season are dropping off, so that is one plus! Read more...

The dog days have set in pretty hard here in the Fort.  103 degrees on Wednesday, ouch.  But we are starting to cool off at least for a few days which is a welcome reprieve from the blistering heat of late.    The middle of the river has a good amount of grass so the water coming down is channeling to the sides providing good visibility and decent fishing on the banks.  Read more...

Late summer fishing continues to be good on the Bighorn.  There’s a few weeks of busy time left on the river, but crowds have cut down considerably even this past week.  The Bighorn fish this summer continue to amaze us with their size and strength, so come on out and give it a shot! Read more...
