Bighorn River Dry Fly Action is ON! Featured

Nice Rainbow Dell !! Nice Rainbow Dell !!

April has brought cooler weather with overcast skies and perfect conditions for both midge and BWO hatches.  Early morning midge hatches have the Brown and Rainbow trout looking up and the best patterns have been smoke jumpers, sipper midges and midge clusters.  As the waters warms up in the afternoon (It needs to reach about 42 degrees) the Baetis hatch has been very good at times with a variety of adult BWO patterns being effective as well as Baetis smoke sumpers and emerger patterns trailed behind a larger flag fly like a Mahogany. Recent rains have contributed to increased snow pack in the mountains and the lake level continues to rise giving us the good water levels we will need this summer.  Nymphing has been steady and pretty productive with pink firebead soft hackle sowbugs, orange scuds, trailed by zebra midges, and baetis nymphs working very well.  Current river conditions and good lake levels portend an excellent season for the Bighorn River and the lodge.  Call Cheryl at the lodge 406-666-2368 and LETS GO FISHING!  Rick
