Fishing Conditions

September 22, 2022

As the fishing on the Big Horn transitions from Summer to Fall fishing, it has been a very tricky river to fish due to the weeds. Pseudo Baetis and a trico here and there have really been the only thing picking up fish, with a hopper or terrestrial as an indicator fly with a small baetis emerger or flashy nymph as a dropper. Also most of these fish have kept in the riffles as these are the least weedy locations and the most oxygenated waters. This method should change soon as the weeds release and we fully transition into fall fishing over here.
