Bighorn River Fishing Report: Spring Flows
The Bighorn River water flows have remained steady at 5500 cfs for several weeks. Inflow is roughly 2500 cfs and Boysen Reservoir is 61% full. We have a very large snowpack in the mountains surrounding the Bighorn Basin, and our first 80 degree weather is projected over the next few days. Lots of melting is going to happen, and we will keep you posted on conditions. Despite the winter storm this weekend and weather patterns the last few weeks we have been catching trout. It is not lights out like most Aprils we are all used too, but fish have to eat and our guides and guests have been bringing in a few nice sized trout each trip. Dunoir Fishing Adventures is happy with the high water! It should only help the fish populations and definitely helped the spawn this spring. We have more guide trips going out this week. Keep posted for more fishing reports and to check current water conditions on the Wind and Bighorn River please go to the Bureau of Reclamation’s website HERE.
Green River Fishing Report: Dam Release Schedule
Fontenelle Dam is scheduled to up the water release over the next few days. Guide Spike was on the Green River last week and water was murky with some improvement as the day went on. The fishing conditions aren’t as good as we saw them in while guiding in February and March. Weather temperatures will be increasing in the area over the next few days as well. The fishing will pick up once we get through some weather, snowmelt, and more stable conditions. Here at Dunoir Fishing Adventures we always have somewhere to fish even during challenging conditions.
