Bighorn River & Dubois Fishing Reports: The fly fishing on the Bighorn has been pretty decent this week despite unfavorable looking water. Our guides Nick and Todd have been out several days this week, and have brought quite a few nice fish to the boat. Water is off-color and visibility is limited. Water flows on the Bighorn River are currently running at 7042 cfs and Boysen Reservoir is 73% full. Inflow is up to 15,640 cfs so we are definitely seeing the beginning of peak runoff. Guide Todd is out again today, so we will have more reports coming soon. Hot flies are sow bugs and annelids right now. The fly fishing in Dubois is still fairly limited with the Wind River running big and some flooding occurring. There are a few nice lakes to fish and a few tributaries that are fishing well.
Bighorn River Fishing Conditions Wyoming: Good news! The warm weather this week helped to defrost the river. The ice dam between Wedding of the Waters and Hot Springs State Park is now gone! There is little to no ice floating down the river and conditions are in good shape for winter fly fishing. This weekend is the last to hunt waterfowl. We had a great weekend this last week with good luck with both the cast and the blast. There was never a dull moment in the boat. Hot flies right now are worms, midges, sowbugs, and streamers. Our guides love fishing in all conditions and seasons, but winter is a whole different special. Not much traffic on the river, nice backdrop, and stellar fly fishing. We are still offering our winter special for $350 (one angler or two).
