Going to California

Written by

The Bighorn River Lodge is packed up and ready to head West.  We are on our way to the annual Fly Fishing Show in Pleasenton California.  This is not our first trip to California this year; a month ago we attended the Inernational Sports Expo in Sacramento.  What was the biggest question on angler's minds in the Golden State?  Water.  Luckily, BRL had the anwser they wanted to hear. 

Montana has received an incredible amount of moisture this winter.  The mountains are sitting at 140% of the snow pack for 2014.  This means an ample supply of cool water all summer long and into the fall. On the Bighorn River, history has proven that a good flush of water in the early summer will help flush moss and silt from the river bottom.  This results in great fishing and prolific P.M.D and Yellow Sally hatches.

When we arrive in Pleasenton this coming weekend, I know water and snowpack levels are going to be on everyones mind. Some ask questions like, " Will there be enough water or too much water?" Fortunatly, even at high water levels, the Bighorn River flows clear and fishes unbelievable.  

If you are in the area, come visit us that the Alameda County Fairgrounds, February 21, 22, and 23.  The Bighorn River Lodge will be giving a presenation on the Bighorn River every day during the show. Come check out the river's history and see some awesome photos of the area and fish.  It is going to be great!
