Bighorn River Fly Fishing 2020
Bighorn River Fly Fishing Report, Thermopolis, Wyoming: Fly fishing has been pretty darn great the past couple of weeks. The Bighorn River is in good shape and the trout have wintered well. We are catching a lot of big trout, but there is a healthy class of 12-14 inch trout as well.
The weather has really heated up this past week, and the snow pack is melting quickly. This melt caused the Bighorn River to blow out this weekend. The snow is just about gone in Thermopolis. The weather is supposed to be nice all week. Sunshine and warmth is very much welcome!
Please respect the Rainbow Trout redds (spawning grounds) as they are busy doing their reproducing. Do not wade or fish the large white patches in the river. We need trout to reproduce to have a healthy river.
