Bighorn River Fishing Report

Current Report
Fishing is excellent, and BWOs are everywhere! Both nymphing and dry fly fishing is producing lots of fish.

Special Report
The bump in river releases has really triggered some spectacular blue wing olive hatches the last several rainy days. Heads are up all over the river! The higher flows has also helped with the algae accumulation.

One-Week Fishing Forecast
Temperatures are finally expected to warm up. River releases will most likely continue to increase as runoff begins.

Hot Fly Patterns
Small BWO emergers and nymphs are working very well. Midge patterns in cream, root beer and olive are picking up lots of fish, too. The usual Ray Charles (plain and soft hackle) in pink or gray (16-18), orange, tan, grey, or pink soft hackle sowbugs in (14 16 and 18) scuds in orange or pink (14-16). Egg patterns in Chartreuse or Orange (6-8).

River Flows
5,000 cfs by Friday
