Bighorn River Fishing
Come and experience a day of guided fishing on the pristine waters of Wyoming's Bighorn River
When people talk about the Bighorn River Fishing they're usually talking about the famous blue ribbon stretch of the Bighorn River below Yellowtail Reservoir near Fort Smith Montana. Most people don't realize there's another amazing tail water fishery some one hundred twenty miles upstream near the small town of Thermopolis, WY.
It's on this stretch of the Bighorn River; I dedicate my time to providing anglers with a truly memorable Bighorn River guided fishing experience. Depending on the type of fishing trip you are most interested in, fishing dries, wets, streamers, hoppers, or nymphs, its helps to know the times certain flies hatch to help determine the best time of year to book a Bighorn River fly fishing trip. Some of the hatches on this amazing stretch of bighorn river include the midge hatch, blue wing Olive hatch, Green drake, Pale Morning Dunn, and Tri-co hatches.
Bighorn River Fishing trips are half-day fishing trips and full day fishing trips, customized to fit your schedule. You will drift in Hyde drift boat that will comfortably accommodate two anglers and a fishing guide. You will cast from the boat while drifting and while anchored in deep runs and pools some wading can be done in the shallower runs. Fly fishing is highly recommended, but spin fishing is also very effective. Bighorn River Outfitters provides tippet and flies that will make your fly fishing trip a success. While fishing this beautiful river, you will pursue rainbow trout, brown trout, and cutthroat trout.
