Eclipse weekend

Pretty good weekend of fishing. River is still around 2200cfs. Getting a few hopper eats and crawdads are still producing. Here's a few of my favorite fish from the last couple days

Fishing report

Brie is all smiles with a big brown 

Flows are around 2200cfs which is actually about normal for this time of year. Nice to see the bottom in a few places. Clarity is still just a couple feet. Not much in the way of dry fly action yet, though we did get a handful of fish to eat the hopper. Fishing overall is OK... not very consistent.  Maybe 10 fish hooked one day and then 30 or 40 the next.... definitely a gamble. The plus side is there is no moss to contend with. In the meantime I'm waiting for tricos....

Bighorn River Fishing Report

Flows are down to 2500cfs. Still about 2ft of vis. Banks are looking good. But no dry fly action. Maybe some streamer fishing. Nymphing is good and some days very consistent.

We've been on the water a lot lately but we do have a few days open in August.

Bighorn River Flows Update

Sounds like the river will be at 3000cfs on monday. Clearing up but still very green... Maybe 2ft of vis. Still eating crawdads and worms. Hopefully we will start seeing some dry fly action in the next couple weeks. Until then...
Keep it tight.

Fishing of course

Flows are around 5000cfs. I heard 4k by monday. Fishing is good, river is greening up nicely, and you can find the bottom in quite a few places. Streamer fishing sucks and there is no dry action... Nymphing with worms and crawdads seem to be the most consistent. No floating moss or grass. And you can make it under the low bridge below 8th Street.

Have a couple slots open for July. August is filling up fast. And plenty available dates for September. Dry fly fishing should get good by mid August and i think it's gonna be a great September.

What a long, strange melt it's been...

Talked with BuRec today... releases from Boysen were dropped to 7000cfs this morning. Probably drop to 6500 tomorrow and 6000 by the weekend. Their goal is 2500cfs by July 24th. River seems to be clearing... doesn't have that shit brown look to it anymore. ..more like baby shit green. Fishing can only get better from here.
