Bighorn River

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Dry fly fishing what is left is best done from down stream from the fish, presenting the fly as a dead drift. Nymph fishing below indicators with 9?-4X leaders (Orvis Superstrong # KM0714-61) a BB split shot seems to be the right weight. Orvis' Heliios Rod with it's strong backbone, is really handling these bigger fish very well. I prefer the Helios 6 weight. (ZG Helios 906-4 Tip 9.5)

Seven-day forecast 

Temps warming a bit after the deep freeze of last week. Mid 30's all week
