It’s been a little bit since I’ve posted an update, but good news is not much has changed!  The Bighorn is in prime Winter shape.  Gin clear, fantastic clarity and cold water temps.  The weather lately has been insanely nice, so of course more than a few folks are taking advantage of it.  Read more...

 

The Bighorn has finally cleared and fishing is great!  A few folks around, but not too bad.  Our Bighorn Brown Trout are in full spawn mode so please stay off the redds!

Nymphing with BIG Sowbugs, Squirmies and Orange Scuds are still about all you need.

We’ve seen some BIG fish showing up to chase the streamerRead more...

It’s finally turning around!  The Afterbay is beginning to fill and clarity in the river is slowly improving.  We’ve had some fantastic weather and great fishing the past few days and should continue to get even better!

Streamer time is here.  Dredging with tips is the preferred method this time of year.  Read more...

Not much has changed the past week or so.  The clarity in the river still remains marginal.  The reports from a few guide trips have been good, but you gotta know where to fish!  The grass has cleared out some more, but we really need another cold front to help get the river back to its normal clarity.  Read more...

Water temps are slowly on the drop and fishing seems to be picking up.  This was our last ‘busy’ weekend and not busy like the Summer.  If you like solitude and great weather, this is a good time to fish the Bighorn.

Streamer fishing has been productive for most.  Small Buggers like the Grinch, Lil Kim and Thin Mints are working their magic.  Read more...

It looks like the Fall season is finally here.  Dropping temps are providing for some great fishing conditions.  The crowds are gone for the year and trips are slowing up.  We’re still cranking here everyday and available to help you out!  Fishing has been good for some and tough for others.  Read more...

It’s quieting down a bit on the river, traffic wise.  Fishing has still been fairly good, even though they’re still working on repairs on gates at the dam.  Water temps have been up and down, so overall making fishing a bit different each day.

The Tricos are strong most days and there is a good window of fish up in the morning hours taking advantage of them. Read more...

Fishing remains good during the morning hours and a bit spotty later afternoon.  The BOR is doing repairs on gates at the main dam, so water temps have fluctuated the past couple days.  We should see them start to drop again at least by Monday.  This should help!

Tricos are still around providing some good fishing for big fish in the morning hours.  Read more...

How’s the fishing?  Depends on who you ask!  I’d say it’s pretty darn good overall.  The Upper 3 is getting a bit grassy, but great conditions below.  Crowds are thinning and some cooler weather is ahead.

We’re seeing some good Trico activity most mornings.  If you’re on the water by 8:30 or so, you should have some targets to throw at.  Read more...

Flows have dropped down a bit and are currently around 35oo CFS.  Fishing has picked up overall, but there are some odd days where it just isn’t happening.  Not quite sure why.. It’s a good time of year to fish with a guide!

We’re still seeing some fish on Tricos in the morning hours.  Read more...
