Bighorn River

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

A little dry fly fishing and 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) 1-B 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 

River at 3,000 CFS; lots of moss. Sunny and hot this week. Warm with 20% chance of rain in the PM the rest of the week..
