BIGHORN RIVER, GREEN RIVER & DUBOIS FISHING REPORTS:
Bighorn River Fishing Conditions: The Bighorn River is as big as most people have seen it right now and is flowing at 9012 cfs. Hot Springs County is requesting that people steer clear of the river until we get through our peak runoff (happening now). The river was fishing ok at 8000 cfs, but now it is a muddy mess. Current inflow is 17,775 cfs. We will not be booking trips on the Bighorn or below Boysen Dam until conditions improve. We will keep you posted on these conditions as they get better.

Dubois Area Fishing Conditions: The Dubois area is the headwaters for the Wind River and Bighorn River. The Wind River and many of its tributaries are at peak muddy flows right now. If looking to fish the area we have had guides on the mountain lakes. The upper elevations are starting to improve and we have had success fishing these areas. Some of the high mountain creeks are becoming fishable. We have not really had any big hatches come off yet, so we are looking forward to the next several weeks as water conditions improve. We are taking bookings right now for the mountain lakes and high mountain streams right now.
Green River Fishing Conditions: We have been guiding on the Green River several days this week. Fishing has been productive when the weather and the wind are favorable. The Green River is flowing BIG (10,500 cfs) and is a little off color, but the fishing has remained steady despite big river flows. Definitely not a great time to wade fish the Green River, but the drift boat gets you to all the water. We are booking trips on the Green River right now, and conditions will only improve as the peak runoff subsides.
