Bighorn River

Tip of the week 

Dry fly fishing what is left is best done from up stream from the fish, presenting the fly as a dead drift. Nymph fishing below indicators with 9?-4X leaders (Orvis Superstrong # KM0714-61) 2-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 

Fishing remains very good right now. Nymphing is strong and fishing should remain very good throughout the week. Temps in the 80's and 90's with the chance of afternoon storms. Another great week to be on the river!!
