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.

The Spring Baetis are  starting to make a big appearance and we’re seeing more and more fish on them daily.  Read more...

Recent colder weather reminds us that Spring in Montana can be cruel.  It also can result in great fishing, which is where things are headed.  The Spring Baetis are slowly growing in numbers and along with prevalent Midge hatches, it’s getting closer to one of our favorite dry fly seasons of the year.  Read more...

We hope everyone is enjoying their extended weekend and are getting out to fish.  Good things are still going on here on the Bighorn.  We’re finally headed towards a big cool down, which should keep the fish happy and the fishing great through September.

The Caddis window is starting to wrap up overall.  Read more...

Dry fly season is on!  The Bighorn continues to kick out impressive hatches of PMD’s and Black Caddis daily.  Fishing has been great in all aspects (Nymphing, Dry fly, some streamers).  Definitely a few people around, but the fish don’t seem to mind.

If you’re looking to hunt heads, plan on being on the water by about 11 and stay until dark.  Read more...

It’s starting to happen!  The dry fly game is just about on.  PMD’s, Black and Tan Caddis are increasing in numbers, and finally, it’s that time.  It will only get better from here on out.

The Fish are looking as good as they have in years and there are some BIG ONES out there right now.  Read more...

We’re nearing prime summer time and conditions on the Bighorn.  Flows have stabilized at 2500 CFS and the fish have seemed to find their new homes.  Nymphing has been really good and we’re just starting to see a few fish looking up, which should just get better over the next few weeks.

Water levels have come up just a bit the past few days to around 2350 CFS.  The increase in flows has helped out the fishing overall, but it’s not a gimme out there right now.  We still have a good majority of rainbows in the system finishing up the spawn.  Read more...

Not a whole lot of things have changed the past week on the Bighorn.  Flows are stable at around the 2K CFS mark and the river remains gin clear and there is some moss showing up on the lower river.  This is something we used to see in the lower water years and it will eventually clear out when Summer rolls in.  Read more...
