    Default Are the Hoppers Happening yet on the Bighorn ?

    I'm flirting with making another trip up there next week and am wondering if anyone here has some first -hand information?

    Thanks in advance , guys.

    Jim: According to Eric they are out in numbers. Take a look at this thread, last page, scroll down to where Bighorn Flies talks about hoppers and pink being the hot color: Hoppers in Montana

    ^^What Larry said.

    "Pink Pookie" is a pretty good pattern.

    It's happening, but the action is spotty. Some days you can't keep them off and others it's hard to buy a rise. The Pink Pookie and the Pink Morrish Hopper are good choices as well as the Grand Hopper. What's been really working are Purple Lightning Bugs in sizes 18 and 20 and the usual nymphs if you can stay out of the grass. Fishing Streamers early in the morning has also been producing Circus Peanuts in Yellow/Brown and Black size 4 have been the ticket for me.
