Bighorn River Report: If it’s not baetis, you aren’t fishing

The baetis hatch just keeps growing in intensity. Fish are keying in on nymphs, emergers and adults. Small dark midge pupa are still in the diet but once the baetis get moving around, the fish are all over it.

Dry fly fishing has been tough for a couple days because of the wind but today was calm, overcast and spectacular.

Flows are low, water is clear. Come test your mettle against the Bighorn trout.
