Bighorn River June fishing

Written by

June fishing on the Bighorn has produced some excellent results like this beautiful rainbow caught by Dell Despain one of the guides here at the lodge.  The Baetus hatch is pretty much gone so most of the focus has been on nymphing.  Wonder nymphs, zebra midges, brassies, grey rays and some red San Juan worms have all been working.  The choice will vary depending on the time of day and location on the river.  If it works, stay with it until it doesn't and try something else.  The rainbows are approaching the end of their spawning season and the fish in general seem to be moving around to new locations, so it requires a little hunting at times to find them.  We have had a lot of rain in the last week or two and ther river flow increased from 1850 up to 2250 for a day or two.  A good 3500 cfs flush would clean up some of the moss in the river and really help the habitat so I am hoping the new rains will entice the decison makers to do that.  The weather today is in the high 70's and clear and it should be another spectacular day on the river.  We still have some excellent bargains on packages until the end of the month so call Cheryl at the lodge and take advantage of these great rates.  See you on the river!
