With the Bighorn River being a tailwater fishery, we fish all year. However, our peak season is April 1-November 15.
Outfitting trips will include shore-side lunch, all your fishing flies for the day and all terminal tackle. We also have Orvis rods, reels, and waders if you need.
Our typical day starts with meeting clients, discussing their desires and experience. If needed, we give casting lessons on the lawn before heading to the river. This is key for beginners for a successful day. The morning meeting time is 8am and we will go over the planned float for each day.
We fish for brown and rainbow trout. In early spring the midge fishing is good. In late spring we fish the baetis hatch on cloudy days. Mid-summer we have the best luck with pale morning duns and the hopper hatches are great. Early fall we fish hoppers, caddis, and tricos.
