All area streams and rivers are officially blown out. Run off is in full swing. That means fun on the area lakes (and the Bighorn at Ft. Smith). The Horn is running a bit high, but the fishing is good. It’s back to the worm/scud combo with the higher flow. Still quite a bit of moss, but well worth the trip.
The Bighorn at Thermopolis is high and dirty. Rock slides in the canyon from torrential rains last week will continue to have a negative effect for quite a while. If you fish it, bring your best dirty water game: big black buggers, worms (try purple), and dark leech patterns.
The lakes in Wyoming are fishing well on callibaetis imitations, ants, midge larvae and leeches pulled and twitched through the weed beds. Some damsel flies are around, but are not a real factor yet. (Newton Lakes, Luce and Hogan).
The Shoshone is high and dirty in Cody.
Here are a couple of fish taken on Newton today.
