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!

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...

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...

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...

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...

We just got word last night that flows are on the drop.  The Bighorn will be dropping 250 CFS a day until it reaches 2600 CFS, which should be early next week.

Fishing is awesome right now!  Pretty much a subsurface deal, but PMD’s should be right around the corner.  Read more...

Bighorn River flows are now down to 4500 CFS.  Not a lot has changed fishing wise.  If anything it’s starting to fish more like Summer and the bugs are right around the corner. Water temps have come up just a bit, which is what we’re looking forward to!

We hope everyone had a great 4th of July weekend!  It’s been pretty quiet traffic wise here on the Bighorn.  We’ll see the Summer crowds showing up here about mid month.  The river continues to fish pretty well, even with cold (low – mid 40’s) water temps.  The clarity on the Bighorn is unreal right now too!  Read more...

Bighorn River flows continue to drop.  We’re at 5500 CFS as of yesterday and the end goal is to be around 4500.  According to the BOR, our Summer flows will be somewhere between 2500 and 3500, at some point…

The river continues to fish well top to bottom.  Read more...

Bighorn River flows have stabilized at 7000 CFS.  As of now, we will not see the projected max flow of 9500, which is fine with us!  The fish have really settled into their new homes and are eating really well.   The river is in fantastic shape with crystal clear flows and water temps are slowly on the rise.
