Big Horn River Reports

Wednesday, September 10th

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

Posted by Bryn on Jul 11, 2014 | Big Horn River The flows have increased significantly in the last few days making subsurface fishing the best option.  The best times to fish the Big Horn lately have been in the morning to early afternoon.  We have had a few reports of the black caddis being a good dry fly for the evening fishing.

Posted by Bryn on Jul 7, 2014 | Big Horn River The Big Horn is really weedy right now, and not fishing incredibly well.  But it is not very crowded for Big Horn standards.  Most are fishing the upper miles.  Standard Big Horn nymph rigs, and sporadic dry fly fishing on BWOs and PMDs.

Posted by Nick Moses on Jun 22, 2014 | Big Horn River Dry fly fishing has slowed down some on the Big Horn. Nymphing has still been good with blood worms, scuds and sows, small mayfly nymphs and midges. There is some algae floating around so be ready for that, the damn dam to 3mile is the best section to fish to avoid it. Streamer fishing has also been good at times.

Posted by Nick Moses on Jun 13, 2014 | Big Horn River The Big Horn is in good shape right now. The level has dropped a lot over the last four days and is now under 5,000cfs. Nymphing has been good with scuds, sow bugs, san jauns, small mayfly nymphs and midges. The dry fly fishing has also been good with midges in the morning and baetis in the afternoons. Early mornings and late evenings or overcast

Posted by Nick Moses on May 24, 2014 | Big Horn River The Big Horn is fishing well, and is a good option this time of year. The dry fly fishing has been picking up, and there have been good numbers of baetis out in the early afternoons. Nymphing has also been good with san juans, scuds, sows, firebeads, red midges, and small mayfly nymphs. Fishing the banks with streamers can also be productive, especially early in
