Bighorn River Fly Fishing January Report: Dunoir Fishing Adventures had a fantastic three days on the Bighorn River with Ed. Thanks Ed, and congratulations for catching some nice bruisers from the ‘Horn! January turned out to be a great month for drifting and fishing the river. Last year, the Bighorn had a major ice dam form near Hot Springs State Park destroying the dock at the take-out. So far, the river has been relatively free of ice. We will see what the next month brings. We have been busy taking reservations for this season on the Bighorn River, Green River, and the Wind River. Last season, our guides were completely booked from July to October with few exceptions. We encourage our guests to book their trips as far out in advance in order to reserve their guide for these rivers. Keep posted for more fishing reports and pictures to come!
Bighorn River Fly Fishing Video by Eric Cook: Thanks Eric for making this great video of our trip this weekend on the ‘Horn. Our guides Jeff and Nick had a stellar day with you guys. Looks like the mantra big water, big flies, equals big fish. The Bighorn River is still flowing at over 7000 cfs, but will be coming down as Wyoming’s waters have peaked. We expect the fishing to be absolutley stellar this year. We have trips going out on the Bighorn and in Dubois this next week, so keep posted for more reports to come.
Bighorn River Fishing Guide Report: Spring is in full swing with great trout fishing on the Bighorn River in Thermopolis, Wyoming. Guide Jeff Judkins had a great day with Johnny and his nephew, Calef, who had his first day in a drift boat in Wyoming. The boys had a great day and caught some nice browns and rainbows! The wind was pretty brutal for Thermopolis standards, but the guys fished through it and had good results. Thank you Johnny and Calef for the fun day! We have several boats going out the next few days on the Bighorn River so stay posted for more reports to come.
Dunoir Fishing Adventures would like to welcome aboard new local guide, Rick Mickelsen to our crew! Rick has been our go-to fishing-hunting-skiing-scotch drinkin’ partner for many years. Rick is a Wyoming Native and probably knows all of Wyoming’s waters better than anyone we have met. We are grateful to have him on our team!

Bighorn River Fly Fishing Winter Report: Cabin fever has set in, great weather report for today equals fly fishing on the Bighorn River in Thermopolis, Wyoming! The river is clear and free of ice from Wedding of the Waters to 8th Street after the big ice jam and arctic weather we experienced a few weeks ago. It was great to get back on the river again with our good friends Dave and Asha. It was all about the kiddos today and we made sure to get the rod in their hands. We had three children under 12 years old and there was nothing but smiles for miles and good memories made. Fish were keying in on midges, and small bugs. We did see a few nice fish rise for midges on top. With a little more weather we will be fishing dry flies in the middle of winter. We have boats going out this next week, so keep posted for more reports to come. Jump in our boat for our Winter Drift Boat Special on the Bighorn River in Thermopolis for $380 (one or two anglers).
