Bighorn Fishing Report 8/4/2022

Date: 08/04/2022

Current Conditions

The general tailwater fare of scuds, sowbugs, and aquatic worms are doing well on the Bighorn. But more importantly, fish are starting to move up into shallower water and feeding on the surface. Caddis and PMDs are starting to appear and some fish are being taken off the top. Nymphing will be the most productive but keep an eye out for heads in the riffles. Terrestrial action is inconsistent but the reward can be good as large fish are taking hoppers.
