Default Re: Float tubing the Bighorn

It has been done but I would highly recommend not doing it. First and foremost because even though the Bighorn is fairly mild it does have some dangers that could kill you in a float tube. I watched in horror as a guy in a pontoon boat almost met the grim reaper this last spring. Secondly the water in the Bighorn is very cold and I don't care what wading gear you have you will get cold. Thirdly you better be ready for a fist fight if you can't control the tube and stay out of other folks way. It is a busy river and there will be guys who will take exception to you floating in a float tube, especially if you float over the hole they are wade fishing in. If you are dead set on using the tube I would recommend that you just use it to ferry yourself across the river at the Three mile access. There is a ton of great wade fishing below the access and you could use the tube to get from one side to the other.
