Bighorn Fishing Report 10/15/2020

Date: 10/15/2020

Current Conditions

The fishing on the Bighorn is good once again. Clarity has improved significantly the last week. Nymphing and streamer fishing have been the best methods for catching fish by far. Fish a large crayfish or sculpin pattern as a lead fly with a flashy attractor off the back. Stripping thin profile streamers has also been an excellent choice. Red San Juan worms with a hot bead and orange sowbugs can be deadly here as well so don't leave without some of these in your box. Tricos are happening along with pseudos but not many fish are coming to the surface. Beatis will be fun in november on the Bighorn.
