Bighorn River, Montana
August 24-31 and August 31-September 7, 2019
The Bighorn River in Montana was one of our first hosted trip destinations and it's remained a constant for over 30 years. We've seen high water, low water, warm water, cold water – depending on rainfall and what they do with releases up at the dam, but one thing that is always predictable, always certain is that you will catch fish. It's where we go for our fish fix.
It's often said that there are no little fish in the river because they are seldom caught. But there are miles of back channels, eddies, and weedy marshes that make perfect habitat for small fish. The Bighorn is full of islands and side channels and one can simply disappear for hours during a good hatch when the 16-20” fish are up and feeding. We plan our August departure to the Bighorn hopeful that we will have hoppers and tricos which, when they're on, can produce spectacular fishing. And then there are the occasional Yellow Sallies, Mahoganys, Tricos, Black Caddis, and the list goes on. And don't forget the nymph fishing, always a dependable bet too.
Anglers can settle in and comfortably fish from the boat or use the it for transportation and get out to wade the riffles, runs and pools. 2 weeks, 2 groups. Stay with us at Kingfisher Lodge quietly located near the river just outside of town. Enjoy a 10 minute walk to the stream in the evening to check out the caddis hatch from our private access.
