Dry Fly Fishing

Written by

Dry fly fishing on the Birghorn is upon us.  The Browns and Rainbows are taking hoppers with a variety of emerger patterns as droppers. A Super Bettle and large ant patterns with a black caddis trailer are also working well.   With the lower water levels these combos are best in the riffles and deeper runs.  Sight fishing with black caddis and an emerger dropper is best in the later afternoons and evenings.

Nymphing with a wire worm and droppers of soft hackel grey rays or soft hackel pink or tan sow bugs is also still productive.  Droppers of zebra midges or quill numphs seem to work better from the Bighorn Rapids down where the black caddis are more prevelent.  Still a lot of summer left so come fish with us!!!
