Bighorn Fishing Report 9/14/2020

Date: 09/14/2020

Current Conditions

Hatches are pretty quiet right now on the river with Tricos not quite going en masses yet - but they should be showing up soon. They are always later on the Bighorn than we are used to in western Montana. There are caddis and a few Tricos around, so the ardent dry fly angler can find some fish rising here and there.

Nymphing with two sowbug  has been the most consistent setup the last week, fished with about a BB in weight in the deeper parts of the runs. Shallow nymphing along seams has been good when wade-fishing, but the sowbug setup has been the way to go. Brown and wine colored San Juan's will find some fish too!
