Big Horn River Reports

Wednesday, February 10th

Posted by Yankee Jim on Feb 10, 2016 | Big Horn River The handfull of reports we've gotten from the Big Horn lately have been quite good. The Streamer fishing is still super productive and getting better with the warmer weather. Low light conditions are the best for a great streamer bite, but what else would you do at 6am in Fort Smith. The fish are eating adult Midges pretty well right now too, some clusters

Posted by Yankee Jim on Jan 29, 2016 | Big Horn River The forecast doesn't look too bad for the next few days out that way. The fishing has been holding in there well. I think the Brown Trout spawn is over for the most part but the hatches have been getting more consistent as of late. Midges have been the only hatch to worry about so far but the water temps only need to warm

Posted by Yankee Jim on Jan 20, 2016 | Big Horn River The temps have been getting warmer as of late on the Big Horn and the huge crowds havn't shown up in the masses yet, all though I've heard it has been a little more crowded this year compared to other years. The fishing has been consistant with orange Scuds, Sow Bugs, Midges and small Streamers. Rooms have been kind of hard to find

Posted by Yankee Jim on Dec 27, 2015 | Big Horn River It's been cold and windy on the Big Horn lately but it looks like it could warm up later in the week for New Years. If you need a place to go for a couple of days and want to catch your first 2016 trout consider going here. I think the Streamer bite will still be solid and for sure all the other usual goodies

Posted by Yankee Jim on Dec 16, 2015 | Big Horn River Reports from the Big Horn continue to be possitive. I've seen a couple of pictures of some big fish caught up there last week. The best reports have been from streamer dudes. Stripping small to medium Sculpins or Baby Rainbow Trout patterns through the riffles and skinny tail outs seems to be having it's moments right now. Of coarse the regular stuff, Sow

Posted by Yankee Jim on Nov 28, 2015 | Big Horn River The Big Horn is a great choice if you are going to be in that part of the state or you're looking for a productive over nighter. The Streamer fishing has been good to great and the occasional Midge hatch has had some fish up eating dries once and a while. The most productive flies will be the usual cast of characters, Ray Charles,

Posted by Yankee Jim on Nov 19, 2015 | Big Horn River The Big Horn continues to be very good. The weeds are thinning out and the Streamer fishing has picked up a bunch. The Brown Trout spawn is just getting started so they seem to be getting extra spunky. Some BWO's might still show up but Midges are the dominant hatch for the most part. Nymphing the riffles has been good with Midge Pupas and

Posted by Yankee Jim on Nov 10, 2015 | Big Horn River Reports from several people have been very positive. The weeds are clearing out well and BWO hatches are still going strong. Most people seem to be switching to Streamers though since the weeds aren't very bad. The Browns are probably getting ready to start on the "Horn" so they should be getting extra spunky right now. If you don't get the hatch and

Posted by Charlie on Oct 27, 2015 | Big Horn River Tricos are done for the year and some small baetis are just getting started during the afternoons. Dry fly fishing hasn't been great, but look for the baetis to get better now that fall weather is finally here. The streamer bite is picking up with smaller olive and white patterns.  Weeds are still pretty thick, but are starting to die off and thin

Posted by Yankee Jim on Oct 12, 2015 | Big Horn River The Big Horn hasn't changed too much the last few days. It seems like Tricos are still most likely the hatch you'll fish. Some B.W.O.'s came off this weekend with the cool weather and hopefully they will gain some momentum in the upcoming days. Plenty of people are catching alot of fish on a Ray Charles or a San Juan
