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.

Bighorn fish are eating well the entire span of the river, mainly subsurfaceRead more...

This past Summer we fished with the crew from the New Fly Fisher and are proud to share the episode to you.  Please be sure to follow @thenewflyfisher ‘s YouTube page as well.   A big thanks to Mark Melnyk and crew.

We’re looking forward to another awesome Summer just like this past year! Read more...

A little delay in fishing reports, but nothing too exciting and new to report.  The river is in prime shape as far as clarity and lack of vegetation.  We don’t often get long warm weather windows like this and surprised it hasn’t been busier than it is.  A handful of guys out there trying to shoot end of the season ducks, but not a whole lot of fishing pressure right now.

What a nice Winter it has been so far!  No cold fronts in sight for a while, so this a great window to come fish the Bighorn.  The river continues to clear, both visibility and grass, each week.  There’s still some grass on the Upper 3, but below that it’s VERY clean.  Read more...

Things are starting to look up on the Bighorn.  Water clarity has increased dramatically over the past 5 or 6 days.  There is some grass in the system, but not like it was a couple weeks ago.  Fishing seems to be picking up as well!

This is the time the Bighorn if you’re a streamer junkieRead more...

Not a whole lot of new things going on here.   The wind finally looks like it’s going to take a break.  This should be a good week to get out and fish!

Water visibility is still marginal, although we’ve lost a fair amount of the grass that was in the system.  Read more...

We just had one of our earliest and most extreme cold snaps for the late Fall season.  This is the true start of transition on the Bighorn and ultimately helps clean up the system.  That being said, the grass is making its way out, but definitely presents some obstacles in angling.  Read more...

We’re in Fall transition on the Bighorn.  The water clarity is not fantastic, but is not terrible especially toward the lower end of 3-B.  Fishing has still been good, but is very spot specific.  This is the one time of the year I would say the guides are really earning their $ and getting fish in the boat, while other anglers have challenges ahead of them.  Read more...
