Bighorn River is Fishing Well!

More also on Flyfishaddiction

From Flyfishing the Bighorn,

Every time I write one these river reports, I think Spring is finally here. However, the weather has mostly remained colder and wet. Which is good weather for the baetis hatch and it has been excellent. The water remains very cold. Midges continue to hatch throughout the day. So all in all the dry fly fishing has been good. Nymphing has been generally good with some great days and some okay days. The weather has been so erratic that we have had many days where you experience all four seasons. Flies that we are using for nymphing are black midge pupas, brown midge pupa, size 18-20, red midge larvae, size 16, sow bugs, size 18, pink scuds, size 16-18, baetis nymph size 18 and some San Juan worms. Dries, single midge adult size 20-24, and baetis adult in various patterns size 18.
