Currently flows on the Bighorn are running at around 3600cfs which is down 500 from last week. Water temp is between 57 and 59 degrees. Water conditions are quite clear with visibility 6-8 feet. Best success has been on Hopper imitations in fairly large sizes 6, 8 or 10. Best patterns have been on White Cloud Hopper, Morrish Hopper or the Grand Hopper. Colors Tan, Flesh, Pink or Yellow. Still some black caddis in the evening but the trout don’t seem to be keying in on them. Trico action in the morning has been slow but will be picking up in the next few days. Nymph are the usual Scud and Sowbug patterns. Good Luck!
