Bighorn River Green River Wind River Fishing Guide Report
Bighorn River Fishing Report: What can we say? It is early summer runoff for the Bighorn River. Our water flows have gone from 1800 CFS up to 4000 CFS this week. We are seeing off colored water and a lot of moss floating in the river. Fishing is slow right now until the flows stabilize at this new level. We will probably see the Bighorn River at 4000+ CFS for the next ten days or until the runoff has subsided. We should see a more normal water year this summer unlike last year that had massive big flows. There is even talk about eventually dropping the Bighorn River to normal irrigation flows (1300-1500 CFS) as soon as runoff is over. Fishing will remain tough until the river settles down and flows stabilize. Hot flies: annelids, baetis, and attractor patterns.
Green River Fishing Report: Our guides have been having good success catching Rainbow Trout and Brown Trout on the Green River near Fontenelle, Wyoming. The river has bumped up to 6500 CFS, but our guides love to fish these larger flows on the Green River and our guests have great success during this time of year. By the end of the summer, we quit guiding on the Green River due to high water temperatures. We still have plenty of great days of fishing to be had on the Green. Hot flies: baetis, sow bugs, annelids and streamers have been productive. Heads rising on the right day,
Wind River Dubois Fishing Report: The Wind River in Dubois is starting to peak in runoff and still not really worth fishing. There is still plenty of great fishing opportunities to be had on the several tributaries of the Wind River and plenty of lakes that are fishing very well. Our guides know every nook and cranny to be fished right now and are happy to show you a few of our early season fishing spots right now. It will not be too long before the Wind River starts coming down and we are fishing it! Keep posted for more to come.
