Bighorn Fishing Update September 28
I guess the best way to describe the fishing is ‘interesting?’. Definitely a bit off and on right now. Your best window is late morning till about 4 or so. Don’t rush out too early, you won’t miss much! We are getting some big fish and it’s great to see a ton of 10-14″ fish as well. Read more...
Bighorn River Fishing Update September 18
We’re heading into that weird time of year. Hatches are dwindling, weather patterns are changing and the crowds are dying down. There are definitely some fish to be caught, but it’s not been a ‘gimme’. Stick to later mornings and later afternoons for the best success. The Bighorn is still in great shape with clear flows and some drifting grass, but not enough to ruin your fishing. Read more...
Bighorn River Fishing Update 9/12
Fishing remains pretty steady on the Bighorn despite the up and down weather. Mornings have been typically slower and fishing picks up around 11 or so. The upper 3 has less drifting vegetation making it a cleaner option. There are a few more folks taking advantage of it too. Below 3 Mile, there is definitely some drifting grass, but if you keep your bugs clean, you’ll catch fish. Read more...
Bighorn River Update September 5
We just had a flow bump up to 3200 CFS a few days back. It’s changed the river character a bit, especially with the addition of the grass growth. Despite these changes, the majority of fish are willing to eat. The unfortunate side is our hatches have waned and there is a fair amount of drifting vegetation below 3 Mile Access. Read more...

Fishing is plugging along for late Summer. The bugs have been a little less inconsistent and it looks like the PMD’s might be on their way out. There are still enough fish looking up to make a day out of it and the nymphing has had some great moments. There is a some drifting vegetation below 3 Mile, so keep your bugs clean! Read more...
Bighorn River Fishing Update 8/22
The Bighorn is in prime shape right now. Strong hatches of Black Caddis, PMD’s, Psuedos and a few Tan Caddis have kept the fish looking up throughout the day. It’s been quite busy out here, but the fish don’t seem to mind!
Morning fishing has been fairly slow as the fish are awaiting the hatches, which occur around 11-dark. Read more...
How To Row A Drift Boat
As most of you know, the Bighorn River is a very rower friendly river. Throw a large population of anglers and traffic into the equation and there are some subjects you should be aware of. In this video, our buddy Scott Barrus of Spinner Fall, does a phenomenal job of covering the basics of what anglers should be aware of when using a drift boat on the Bighorn River. Read more...
Bighorn River Update 8/11
Dry fly season is finally here! We have a good mishmash of PMD’s, Black Caddis and even some Psuedos keeping fish looking up. From sunrise to sunset, you can find fish on the surface. There are an amazing amount of big fish in the system this season!
Nymphing has been excellent throughout the day. Read more...
Bighorn River Fishing Update 7/30
Looks like it’s just starting to happen here on the Bighorn. We’ve seen decent amounts of fish responding to Black Caddis and PMD’s the past couple days. Expect it to get better and better each day.
If you’re searching for rising fish, we’re for sure seeing more fish in the late afternoon/evening hours. Read more...
Bighorn River Fishing Update 7/23
It’s getting closer to ‘Go’ time on the Bighorn. We’re seeing a few more PMD’s each day and a few Black Caddis. The Summer crowd is here, but the fish are starting to eat big time!
The nymph bite has been steady throughout most of the day, but still a bit spot specific. Read more...
