Worm Bite is On !! Featured

Written by

The Spring run off from snow melt and Spring rains have required the Bureau of Reclemation to increase river flows which is usual for this time of year for the Bighorn River.  This year the Bureau has been much more accomodatiing in how they manage the incremental increases.  We are now running at 7,000 cfs which may seem like a lot, but it is a healthy flush for the river to remove the grasses and clean out the gravel which will create good conditioins for bug hatches throughout the summer.  Additionally the inceased flows have kick loose a lot of worms and sowbugs into the water and the fish bite right now is fantastic.  According to our guides it is the best of the year so far and we have already had some awesome fishing. A #6 red wire worm with a #16 soft hackle sow bug or grey ray has been very effective on both the Rainbows and Browns. These conditions should hold through June.  We have a few opeining in June if you can get away.  See you on the river!
