Bighorn River Fishing Report Wyoming River Flows: The Bighorn River flows are starting to bump up due to the amount of snow in the Wind River and Owl Creek Mountains. Flows have ramped up from 900 to 1525 cfs as of today. Boysen Reservoir is currently 88.8% at capacity. It is expected that the river will soon be up to 2100 cfs. Keep posted to see when the Spring Flush will be happening. It will be this month and more info coming tomorrow.

The Bighorn River was off color and had quite a bit of moss floating in it yesterday, but the weather, company and fishing were great. The moss and clarity will only get better as the river flows stabilize. Hot flies: annelids, sow bugs, streamers. Keep posted for Green River water flow information coming soon. It is going to be a big water year!
Bighorn River & Wind River Fishing Report: Last week with the sudden heating up in the weather, the Bighorn River was chocolate milk from Buffalo Creek to north of town. This weekend the Bighorn River cleared up and the fishing was pretty good. Standard winter, spring flies are pulling fish right now. Think annelids, sow bugs, and midge patterns. There is the occasional blue-wing olive hatching, but the big hatch has not started just yet. The Wind River below Boysen dam boat ramps are super hairy right now and the fishing is only so-so. The cold temperatures seem to be putting the fish down and has them holding in deep water. Heads up that there will be a Bighorn River Cleanup Day this Sunday, February 19, 2017. There will be lots of boats and clean up crews on the water.
Green River Fontenelle Fishing Report: The fishing on the Green River below Fontenelle has been pretty darn good for mid-winter. Fishing has been lights out in the mornings and then slowing up in the afternoons when the air temperatures begin to drop. We had several great days over on the Green River last week with long time guest, Ed. Hot flies were: annelids, sow bugs, and midges. We definitely got luck with little to no wind and clear, sunny skies. Boat ramps are still really tricky and just plan on getting stuck a time or two. There have been lots of wade fisherman out trying to shake cabin fever. What a great place to do just that. Get out and enjoy some winter Wyoming fly fishing!
Bighorn River Wyoming Fishing Report: Temperatures have been cold and we have been receiving some snow. It looks like warm weather is on the way in the next few days. The river is floatable and fishable, especially on a little warmer day. Should the river become iced up on the Bighorn, Dunoir Fishing Adventures is one of three guide services that are permitted to float the Wind River below Boysen Dam. There is always someplace for our guides to float and fish. Hot flies include: sow bugs, annelids, and midges. Streamers have been pretty decent too. We have guided trips coming up and boats going out in a few days. Keep posted for more fishing reports from the Bighorn River in Thermopolis, Wyoming. The river is definitely not crowded right now, and it is great to shake the cabin fever!

Bighorn & Wind River Fishing Report: Dunoir Fishing Adventures guides have been busy guiding on the Bighorn and Wind River. We had some pretty wet and cold weather last week with sub-par river conditions (a bit off color). Our guides made the most of the conditions and our clients toughed out the weather. The fish were hungry and the trout bite was on. We would like to thank John and Randy for a great three days on the river. Congratulations to both anglers who had no problems reeling in browns and rainbows in the 21-24 inch range. Looks like there is a bit more rain coming in this next week, but we always have somewhere good to fish. To see more photos from this last week check out our Facebook Page. Keep posted for more reports to come!
Bighorn River Wyoming Spring Flush: The Bureau of Reclamation; Boysen Dam is tentatively planning on a spring flush March 21-22, 2016 on the Wind/Bighorn River. We will keep readers posted should these dates change, so keep posted. We are happy to see that the river will be flushed and can help clean up the river and spawning beds. Rainbows are currently spawning.
Bighorn River Fishing Report: The fishing was good this weekend, but the strong winds definitely played a role in drifting and catching. When the wind wasn’t blowin’, the trout were biting! Rainbow trout are spawning and actively on their redds. We kindly ask anglers fishing the Bighorn right now to please not fish to these spawning beds, but fish below in deep water. Definitely do not walk on them. Successful flies: annelids, midges, and sow bug. Keep posted for more reports to come!
