Most of our rivers have dropped significantly and can be fished and carefully waded. Things are ahead of schedule which is surprising as we’ve had a substantial snow pack year. Run-off has been consistent and gradual, so far. Hatches have been weak and therefore not a lot of dry-fly fishing. I managed a couple of fish on top over the weekend while angling large river back eddies/sloughs where rainbows were spotted cycling. They took an ant pattern…
Exposed gravel bars and clearing water, most encouraging. Still rather slim pickings around here outside of spring creeks. I hiked to a lower mountain lake nearly two weeks ago and was surprised to find it thawed. The snow is going fast. Bob, nice fish and photos as usual. Great clouds.
Les; Snow is going fast…surprised are rivers are now somewhat wade friendly. Just need a hatch. Nice post on the bighorn river. Beautiful place. thanks for dropping in.
