Outlook

The warm, sunny days are making us long for the cloudy days of spring, but upon reflection, we will take our extended drake hatch over rain. Fish are most active during the morning and during sporadic cloud cover throughout the day, but the drakes are still out for a significant portion of the day. In addition to large mayflies and stones, small terrestrials have begun to fish well.

Flies to try

Parachute Hare’s Ear, Cloud 9, Stubby Ant

The Green from Daniel, all the way up into the national forest, has been fishing well, especially near Warren Bridge. When it’s cloudy, fish are looking up and chowing on the surface. We are still seeing a few drakes, but mostly small stones with the occasional ant.

New Fork River

CFS

Flies to try

Spanish Perdigon, Dornan’s Water Walker, Chubby Chernobyl

The New Fork saw a big drop in flows in the past few days, so the upper reaches of the river are getting boney. The fishing, however, is still highly productive on top, as well as with smaller droppers. Sporadic hatches of small stone flies and calibaetis are still happening, and medium to large foam flies have been working.

Flies to try

Kill Whitey, HH Sowbug, Circus Peanut

The Green below Fontenelle is still fishing well with just about every rig, from streamers on sink tips to dry-droppers. Even with the relative lack of large hatches, the fish will respond to dry flies during low light conditions, but streamers have been doing well to move larger fish.

Bighorn River

CFS

Flies to try

On-Point Para Wulff BWO, RS2, Tips Up

The water coming from Boysen Dam has finally lowered to a reasonable level. At just about 2,000 CFS, it has quickly become a fishable river again. Subsurface flies are always a good bet on the Bighorn, be it streamers or nymphs, but dry fly fishing this time of year can also be great. It is technical, but fish will rise to small dries like PMDs and other mayflies.
