Big Horn River Reports

Saturday, December 13th

Posted by Steven Rendle on Dec 13, 2014 | Big Horn River Sounds like the grass has finally cleared up. There are a lot of browns spawning right now, so keep your eye out and keep your distance. The dry fly has been decent. Late Baetis and Pseudos have the most fish looking up. The midges are just around the corner. Small streamers in natural colors have been producing some nice fish. The key has been to

Wednesday, December 3rd

Posted by Charlie on Dec 3, 2014 | Big Horn River The river has finally cleared of the grass that plagued it throughout fall this year. Nymphing has been solid with baetis, scud, sowbug, egg, worm and midge patterns. Browns are in full spawn now which comes a little later on the Horn than most rivers. Baetis hatches are making for most of the dry fly action now. Streamer fishing is also mostly good now. Slow

Posted by Charlie on Nov 13, 2014 | Big Horn River The Bighorn is a good option during the winter. Water temps are still above 50 degrees and fish havef been feeding well. The river is still a bit weedy and off color, but fishing has improved over the last couple of weeks. Streamer fishing is good with streamers fished down deep on a full sink line. Nymphing with eggs, worms, firebeads, scuds, sowbugs, baetis and midge

Posted by Nick Moses on Oct 31, 2014 | Big Horn River Nymphing is your best bet on the Big Horn right now. Using long leaders and fishing san juans, scuds and sows, small mayflies, and midges has been the ticket. Streamer fishing is also good this time of year, but slow your strips down as the water temperatures begin to drop and we head into winter. Dry fly fishing has slowed down, but there have been

Posted by Bryn on Oct 6, 2014 | Big Horn River The baetis have been popping and it should continue to improve making for some good fishing.  The fishing has been best using nymphs or streamers lately but few fish have still been rising in the mornings for Tricos and Spinners.  Pseudos have also been seen on the Big Horn and heads up for the weeds.  Flies:  Baetis nymph, San Juan, Scuds,

Posted by Nick Moses on Sep 10, 2014 | Big Horn River The water flows have been inconsistent on the Big Horn, especially this month.  Today the flows are above 3,000 cfs.  There are some weeds breaking up but fishing has still been good, just focus efforts in the faster water.  The hopper/dropper has been an effective rig, but the hopper bite is slowing down.  The trico hatch has begun so spinners are

Posted by Bryn on Aug 16, 2014 | Big Horn River The Big Horn is experiencing a few hatches here in mid-August and we have had reports that the fishing has been productive.  In the lower sections but gradually moving upstream are the Yellow Sallies and PMDs.  The caddis are hatching as well so using black and tan caddis in the evenings is a promising option.  The hopper bite should be picking up

Posted by Nick Moses on Jul 27, 2014 | Big Horn River The Bighorn is fishing well right now. Mornings and evenings have been best with the high sun and heat slowing the fishing down a bit in the afternoons. Fish are looking up for black caddis, sallies, and PMDs. A few fish are starting to look for hoppers, and that should continue to improve as we head into August. Nymphing has still been great with the

Posted by Bryn on Jul 16, 2014 | Big Horn River We have had reports that the fishing can be hit or miss on the Big Horn lately.  The algae blooms have started and are proving to make fishing challenging.  The midge and callibaetis have slowed down, so keep an eye out for the next hatch.  PMD hatches are around the corner.  Focus on the faster clear water and avoid the green
