Bighorn River flows have settled in @ 2500 CFS the past few days.  Fishing remains pretty solid overall.  Plenty of big ones still filling the nets and smaller fish as well!

It’s been a solid past few days on the Bighorn as fishing has stabilized and has been very consistent, especially for large fish.  Our guides are bringing in good numbers of fish as well.  Water temps are still a bit cooler but this is great news for the upcoming Summer. Read more...

The Bighorn has been very consistent lately.  Consistent in the fact that the fishing is great one day, then tough the next.  The good news is there have been more good days than tough ones.  It’s been busy out there as everyone is looking to land some of the beastly fish coming out of the river.  Read more...

Fishing is really starting to pick up on the Bighorn.  Flows are up to 3200 CFS as of this morning and the river remains nice and clear.  It’s getting a bit busier out there, but still plenty of good spots to get into fish.

Not a lot has changed pattern wise.  Read more...

It’s finally that time of year where we can get a pretty good read on how the Bighorn River will play out this year.  Judging by our analysis of current snowpack and water levels in other basins, we’re on track for a similar water setup as 2020 – Low, clear, cold water for most of the season.  Read more...

I guess Spring is here?..  The warm weather has brought folks out of the depths of winter and to the Bighorn.  A bit busy for this time of year on the weekends, but we’re not complaining!  Fishing has been pretty darn good if you’re in the right zones.  Many of the fish are found in their normal winter spots, although the water is a bit warmer than normal for this time of year.  Read more...

 

Between the wind and well, the wind, there’s been some small windows of opportunity on the Bighorn.  Those who have made it down have had good things to say.  Winter tailwater fishing at its’ finest right now.
