Bighorn / Wind River

Flows have been pinched way back to conserve water behind Boysen Dam for next year’s irrigation season. Water temps are still very good for all day action.

Nymph and streamer fishing is the name of the game with some dry action  using Trico’s (drowned Trico’s have been hot!), caddis and midge pupae. Hopper action has slowed way down since the colder weather hit and stayed around.

Book a guided trip with North Fork Anglers and we will show you how big the trout can be!
