Fishing report - Bighorn River - Thermopolis, WY

Fishing seems to be picking up. Had a fun couple days pitching streamers with Ryan.. couple of nice browns, some solid rainbows and even a carp...

Flows are still around 2500cfs... the rumor mill says they will drop it mid November. Clarity is getting better, just over a couple feet.

Nymphing is spotty, getting em in a few holes. Streamer fishing is good & bad.... Good one day and bad the next. And there are a few risers when we have the blue wings.

Plenty of days open until November 18 when we fly down to BAJA!

...and it continues

River was bumped up to 2500cfs. Still murky and still mossy.
Also WYF&G will be doing their shocking surveys this week,  Oct 16-19.

Doomsday report

River bumped up to 2100 cfs a couple days ago and has a lot of floating moss. Still murky from the turnover. Things oughtta be back to normal by next week. Streamer bite is okay, keep your flies clean. Nymphing has not been very good and dries are decent as long as it ain't windy

Busy weekend

Flows are 800 cfs give or take.  The river has been lowered to enable the removal of an island in Worland that causes ice jams and subsequent flooding.

I think the lake is turning over... River got pretty murky and there is a lot of globular floating moss.

Tricos are the ticket in the morning,  dry or drowned. Baetis are the key in the afternoons nymphs or dries.
