Default Update on Big Horn River

I`ve been watching the river here in Thermopolis like a hawk for the past week since the derailment. Theres been three big midge hatches and finally today the BWO`s exploded on the river. It rained off and on all day and I couldnt get a chance to fish it but while I was in town I checked up and seen`em. What a relief! The spill wiped out a lot of `em... The river was the clearest it`s been for a while yesterday and I got to wadeing in town. It`s moving at around 4000 so I couldnt hit most of my spots but The ones I got to had fine healthy fish. The river still isnt 100% but I`m glad nothing REAL BAD got in it. 6800 gallons of diesel spilled into the water, thats about 900cbft, the water was moving 2300 when it happend and moved it through fast. It`s too soon to tell what the damage is like upsteam but things in town look OK.
