Wedding of the Waters - Winter Fly Fishing Report

Fishing is great if it's over 30 degrees. Trout are crushing big sow bugs and some midge are showing up in stomach samples. But they are still eating attractors like firebead anything and worms. Concentrate on slow deep water with long leaders. 

River is running clear & clean @ 915cfs.

Watch for ice on the lower river. It looked pretty blocked up the other day at Rainbow Terrace.

Bighorn River - Winter Fly Fishing - Report

Flow is around 915cfs.

Fishing has been fair to good. Cold water temps have the fish moving into deeper holes. Nymphing has been consistent with sow bugs, midge in the morning, baetis in the afternoon and worms. A few fish are eating dries. And the brown spawn is just about wrapped up.

Got a cold snap hitting us this week which will make fishing tough and unenjoyable. Temps next week climb back up into the 40s... looks like a good time to slip away for a little fishing before the holidays.
