Current Conditions

The Bighorn River has been fishing ok. A majority of fishing is done nymphing right now. Fishing typical patterns on the Big Horn like, sowbugs/scuds, worms, crayfish, midges, and small Baetis imitations have been the best. Orange and pink colors work well over here. Streamer fishing has slowed a bit but should pick up when the fish adjust to the changing temps. Strip slow and low to entice a eat.
