Big Horn River Reports

Thursday, November 13th

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

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.
