Bighorn Fishing Report 4/5/2021

Date: 04/05/2021

Current Conditions

The Bighorn River is fishing really well this Spring. Nymphing is the most consistent with Orange worms, sowbugs/scuds, Caddis Larva, Pheasant Tails in #16-18, Hare's Ears, Zebra Midges, and Perdigons have been some hot flies. The dry fly fishing has been pretty decent with the right conditions so it wouldn't be a bad idea to have some Griffiths Gnats if you want some top-water action. There have been a few BWOs out and there should be more on the way if not today with the wet/overcast weather.


Fins & Feathers is a full-service Bozeman fly shop and Montana fly fishing outfitter.
