Default Re: The 13 Mile Bighorn below Yellowtail Dam

The river it's just like that some days. While I don't fish the horn as much as some of the others in my area (like Montana Matt and Tracy). I always tend to use a sow bug and midge pattern set up for most tail waters.

While my trip this past March was decent, we did not catch near the numbers as the year before. Only did 2 days this year too though. The fish were bigger and we fished holes we normally would have floated by, but the fisherman hatch was thick so we took what we could get.

Pink Ray Charles was my go-to fly in 2012, this year it was a green roll over midge. Friend had some luck on small baetis patterns, I did not lol.
