Bighorn River Fly Fishing Winter Report: Cabin fever has set in, great weather report for today equals fly fishing on the Bighorn River in Thermopolis, Wyoming! The river is clear and free of ice from Wedding of the Waters to 8th Street after the big ice jam and arctic weather we experienced a few weeks ago. It was great to get back on the river again with our good friends Dave and Asha. It was all about the kiddos today and we made sure to get the rod in their hands. We had three children under 12 years old and there was nothing but smiles for miles and good memories made. Fish were keying in on midges, and small bugs. We did see a few nice fish rise for midges on top. With a little more weather we will be fishing dry flies in the middle of winter. We have boats going out this next week, so keep posted for more reports to come. Jump in our boat for our Winter Drift Boat Special on the Bighorn River in Thermopolis for $380 (one or two anglers).
