Flows are on the way up to 7k CFS.  Water temps have come up considerably as the BOR is releasing over the top of the dam.  This has made for some really good fishing and will be even better when flows stabilize.  The river feels BIG out there right now, so please be careful as this is not a time for learning how to row a boat!    Read more...

Water is up again a bit on the Bighorn.  Flows were increased to 3450 CFS a few days back in anticipation of the downpour.  The rain showed up heavy and blew out a good portion of the river below 3 Mile.  With the bump in flows, the moss got let loose a bit as well.  Read more...

Bighorn flows are down to 2850 CFS and should stay that way for the rest of the Summer.  Our snowpack got depleted quickly so that is the result.  Water temps are in the low to mid 40’s, so wet wading is a bit tough.  We’re starting to see a fair amount of drifting moss below 3 Mile. Read more...

Fishing has been great lately on the Bighorn.  Flows are currently down to around 3100 CFS and the river remains very clear.  We’re starting to see some moss below 3 Mile, but not bad yet.  Water temps are bumping just a bit and we’re seeing fish moving into some of the faster shelves.  Read more...

Fishing is plugging along here on the Bighorn.  Cloudy days have provided tremendous Baetis hatches in the afternoons with good numbers of fish up on them.  There aren’t many fish up on the sunny days until evening hours.

Most folks are putting up good numbers of fish nymphing with Sowbugs, Scuds and Baetis nymphs.  Read more...

It’s finally go time!  We’re seeing pretty consistent numbers of Baetis getting fish up in the afternoons.  Cloudy days are good, sunny days not so much.   If you don’t enjoy fishing around people, this might not be the place to be right now.  It’s pretty busy most days, but fishing has been solid.  Read more...

Bighorn River Flows are up to 6000 CFS as of this morning.  We were told 5500 was max flow from the Bureau, but that doesn’t seem to be the case.  We’re not sure if flows will continue to rise, or what will happen.

The dry fly fishing has been hampered a bit with the increase in flows.  Read more...

Flows are up to 5500 CFS at the moment.  According to the BOR, we are supposed to stay at this level for ‘maximum Springtime flow’.  We’ll see what happens.  It all depends on how much more moisture we get the next few weeks.  The river is looking fantastic and fishing has been great!  Read more...

River flows are now up to 4500 cfs as of Thursday afternoon.  The water is looking great and the fish are spread out a bit more than before.  There are still plenty of great wading options as well.  The Spring crowds are arriving, but the fishing has been very solid!

I’d say we’re about a week away from prime dry fly fishingRead more...

Flows are up to the 4k mark and might head up depending on how fast this snow comes down.  Right now, the river is in phenomenal shape.  Clear water and junk free!  Water temps have dropped just a bit, but you will be in the high 30’s in the AM and low 40’s lower by the afternoon.  Read more...
