Fishing report and open dates

The Bighorn here in Thermopolis is flowing at 1350cfs. There is quite a bit of grass and floating moss which makes the nymph fishing pretty tough...just slap it off and get it back out there. Drowned Tricos are the ticket in the morning.
Lots of fish looking up and good pods are chowing Tricos on the surface.  Spinner fall occurs about 7:30. After 11 we've been throwing big foam flies (chubbies and hoppers) and finding some nice fish hanging under the trees and grassy banks.
we have plenty of open dates the first half of August which is unusual because it's my favorite time to throw hoppers.
Big brown. Big horn.
