Bighorn River - Big Fish

Dee's Big Brown Dee's Big Brown

While we are experiencing higer flows than anticiapted for June the good news is that the flows are beginning to drop and the water is clear with temperatures in the mid 50's which has produced some veryu prolific fishing.  The other good news is that while fish counts may be down the size and health of the fish is as good as we have ever seen.  Our guides are reporting consistant 20 fish days with sizes ranging from 15" to 22" and a few above that.  Do not let the high flow myth deter you from coming to the Bighorn.  Some of the best fishing I have ever had has been in high flows.  That is proving to be true today.  And do not let the fish count information deter you either.  I am telling you these fish are big, beautiful and strong with a large percemtage being Rainbows.  It is a question of quality over quantity.  Take a look at this 22" brown caught by Dee Rolph and ask your self "would I rather catch 20-30 cookie cutter fish in the 13"-15" range or 12-20 in this size range."  Pretty sure we would all agree on the latter. Come see us at the lodge and let's go fishing!   Call Cheryl today  406-666-2368
