Water Condition

Conditions : Big Horn River: The weeds have begun to let up but the color and clarity aren't good. Nymphing tailwater bugs like sows, scud and worms are the hottest flies to be using. With the back and forth weather there isn't much for dry fly fishing. The streamer fishing has been tough since the river got dirty. You've got to put them right in their face in the shallow riffles to get some action. Hopefully the water color improves soon.
