Bighorn River Fishing Spring Guide Report: Guides Jeramie and RyHud had a fantastic three days on the Bighorn River with Dan, Don, and his two children, Hailey and Logan. We had an absolute blast catching fish, telling lies, and having a great time. We didn’t change flies in three days of fishing and the crew landed a lot of big rainbow and brown trout! We would like to thank the Idaho crew for spending time on the river with us, and all of the laughs and smiles.The blue wing olives are getting thick and dry fly fishing is starting to become more consistent. It looks like spring run-off in Wyoming will be minimal and quick. Our last two years of big snow and precipitation are anticipated to provide for great fishing this season.
Bighorn River Fishing Report: March Madness. I had an excellent day fishing with Ed in Thermopolis yesterday. You can tell that cabin fever has set in with local anglers because Wedding of the Waters was busy yesterday. The fishing and the weather were great. The morning brought cold winds blowing out of Wind River Canyon, but it wasn’t bad once you got on the river. Fish were keying in on small midges, sow bugs, and annelids.

Bighorn River Wyoming Fishing Report: This weekend the fly fishing in Thermopolis started lights out with guide Jeff Judkins, and our friends Pam and Steve. Sunday was an entirely different scenario. The weather wasn’t as good, and the river seemed to bump while floating. Major grass lift, moss, and rif-raf made fishing a chore to keep lines clean. Turns out, Bureau of Rec issued an order to facilitate repairs on Kirby Ditch. This week the river has fluctuated and bumped river flows from 1400 cfs down to 445 cfs. Fishing will be variable and boney floating until river flows settle down and stabilize. We imagine the river will be bumped up to 900 cfs when work is done…just a guess. Hopefully the moss and grass floaties will settle down soon, but may take some time. Keep posted for more river reports on the Bighorn and Green Rivers.
