Bighorn River Fishing Report: BIG RIVER June 2008

Just a short update to the latest fishing report.  The river has gone up to 6000 CFS from 1300.  Amazing what a little more water will do.   The bottom is cleaning up dramatically and is flowing crystal clear.  Floating from the Afterbay the other day, I felt like I could see each and every individual rock and pebble on the river’s bottom.  It’s just awesome to see a return to normal stream flows.   The fishing is EXCELLENT!!  We have lost a little bit of our dry fly fishing, but the nymph fishing is tremendous right now.  San juan worms, scuds, and ray charles are taking most of the fish, with an occassioanal zeba midge or baetis nymph.  The river looks so good right now, and with the added water, things have really spread out.  This should help alot with the increased fishing pressure during the rest of the state’s spring runoff.  I feel like it is 1997 again, and I’m lovin it.
