Conditions : Big Horn River: The Fishing on the horn has been really really good. Indicator rigs have been really solid with a pink bugs trailed by midges. I like a brown zebra midge or a black zebra midge behind either a small leech or pink sow bug or worm. Dry fly fishing has been ok as well. There are still a few BWOs hanging out and midges are out more and more each day. Streamer fishing is also starting to pick up. Fish on the horn spawn late so look for them to be prespawn for the next few weeks as we head into december. Dont pull fish off reds and take care of the browns you do catch. This fishery has been struggling a bit the last few years. Its time to do our part as anglers and take care of this fishery.
