Bighorn Fishing Report by Fins and Feathers 12.8.2018

The reports continue to be pretty darn good from the Bighorn. It’s been cold but the weather looks like it should be quite a bit warmer this coming week. Nymphing has been a great option using pink and orange scuds or sowbugs. It is good to trail these patterns with a midge pupa in black or red. Of course a hares ear and pheasant tail will work all winter as will worm patterns. There has still been some dry fly action on the Horn, primarily midges, so a very small parachute, griffiths gnat, or cluster midge have worked well to trick rising fish. Great weather in the Fort Smith area with high temperatures of 30 degress today but a high up to 40 by Monday! The Bighorn is still a great fishing option if you are willing to drive.
