Friday, February 27th

Posted by Nick Moses on Feb 27, 2015 | Big Horn River  The Big Horn is always a good winter option. Nymphing with Firebead sows, scuds and midges is best this time of year. There are some midge hatches kicking around so have some midge clusters on you as well. If you want to toss streamers start with something bright or dark and work the other way on the color spectrum until you find what they

Posted by Charlie on Feb 9, 2015 | Big Horn River Fishing has been good with the normal stuff for this time of year. Firebead sowbugs, Ray Charles, worm and midge pupa have all been fishing well. Streamer fishing has also produced consistently with olive and white being the colors of choice. Midges have made for some sporadic dry fly fishing.

Posted by Nick Moses on Jan 10, 2015 | Big Horn River The Big Horn is a great option this time of year if you’re willing to make the trip. The water temperatures are still in the 40’s, and the fish are happy. Streamers are working for those of you who like to strip, there are midges around for the dry fly fisherman, and the nymphs are always working. If you’re going

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
