Current flows are 11448 CFS, water temp 44.6 degrees. Snowpack levels in the Bighorn and Wind River drainages remains at 145-190% above normal. The flows were bumped again by another 1000cfs last week. The BOR has been working with the Bighorn River Alliance to evacuate much needed storage space in Yellowtail Reservoir.
The trout are stacked up in any space there is slack water. Back channels, along the bank and any inside corners. Fishing has been excellent-nymphing only. Best success has been using Ultrachenille San Juan Worms, colors red or Fl Orange sizes 6-8 trailed by any crustacean pattern. Try a Bighorn Orange Scud, Firebead Ray Charles or Soft Hackled Sowbugs in colors of Pink or tan. Larger sizes 14-16 work the best. Be careful on the take outs and have a good trip!
