Bighorn River Wyoming Spring Flush: The Bureau of Reclamation; Boysen Dam is tentatively planning on a spring flush March 21-22, 2016 on the Wind/Bighorn River. We will keep readers posted should these dates change, so keep posted. We are happy to see that the river will be flushed and can help clean up the river and spawning beds. Rainbows are currently spawning.
Bighorn River Fishing Report: The fishing was good this weekend, but the strong winds definitely played a role in drifting and catching. When the wind wasn’t blowin’, the trout were biting! Rainbow trout are spawning and actively on their redds. We kindly ask anglers fishing the Bighorn right now to please not fish to these spawning beds, but fish below in deep water. Definitely do not walk on them. Successful flies: annelids, midges, and sow bug. Keep posted for more reports to come!
