Early fall

Flows on the Bighorn River in Thermopolis are around 1200cfs. Fishing has improved with the cooler weather. We've had a busy week with multiple groups, here are some highlights...
Two thumbs up with Lee from Tennessee

Thanks to Mark Nordstrom and the boys from Tennessee for an awesome couple days of fishing! We're already looking forward to next year!

Deuce deuce. Brad B with one of many large browns caught on Thursday

Been finding a few nice fish on hoppers, nymphs, streamers and even some Tricos.

Plenty of days open in September... it oughtta be good.

Fishing Report - Bighorn River, Thermopolis, WY

Flow is around 1300cfs. Fishing is OK. There are plenty of Tricos out there but not really any fish up eating them... and the handful of trout rising are pretty damn spooky. Nymphing is decent... hooking 20 or 30 fish a day with a few nice ones. River is still kind of green, but the clarity has improved and I'm hoping this cooler weather will get those fish looking up. Pretty busy the next couple weeks, but we still have a few days open and some days in September. Late October might be my favorite time of the year, throw steamers until the baetis pop and then hunt some heads.
