United States – Kingfisher Lodge – Bighorn River is Dropping and Fish Are Rising

It’s no secret that the Bighorn River was running higher than normal this summer. High water can be good for nymph and streamer fishing but does not make for good dry fly fishing. The good news is that the Bighorn is dropping a couple hundred cubic feet per second each day, which means the food chain will start acting how it should in mid-late summer. Here is the most recent fishing report we received from Kingfisher Lodge:

“Dry fly fishing has been very steady; a good fisherman is typically bringing 15 – 20 fish to the boat per day. Tan and black caddis have been thick, starting to see Pale Morning Dunn and hoppers. Tricos are starting to show up further downriver, only a matter of time before they make it up our way.” – Owner, Brock Boedecker

Luckily for you, a few spots remain for August 31 – September 7, 2019, on the Becks’ hosted week. Come experience why this river is so special alongside Barry and Cathy while enjoying the superb amenities of Kingfisher Lodge. Enjoy six full days of wade and float fishing on the Bighorn River. Each day begins with a gourmet breakfast, and a streamside lunch recharges you for the afternoon. Swap tales in the main lodge dining area over a hearty dinner, and soak in the rural setting beneath the Bighorn Mountains.

This seven-night/six-day fishing package based on double occupancy/shared guide is $4,395 per person.

Shorter packages are available.
