We're headed into what is, for many of us, our favorite time of year. Many places, like here, have had a tough late summer. For once we didn't have low water but too much water for most of the season. In between high water times there was some very good fishing but the unpredictable weather made it difficult to schedule ahead. Hopefully the weather will settle down (there is no rain in the forecast) and we'll have a beautiful fall season. We are all ready for it. You can see that the fish and the water are in great shape. Come out and join us for some guided fall fishing.
It was a very different year on the Bighorn this year. A record breaking snow pack last winter resulted in high water releases all season...until, luckily, a couple weeks before we arrived. We found the river low and at a great level to fish well, but unfortunately it was also warm and off color. The tricos appeared everyday as we hoped and there was dry fly fishing. Lots of fish were caught but we had to work harder for them than in other years. Let's hope for normal weather both east and west for next season! Here are a few of our favorite images from the August trip.
“Some Days are Easier Than Others”
We found this short story by Bob Romano in MidCurrent. We love the north woods and have had some fishing adventures in Maine. It's a humorous fall fishing story with a slight twist at the end. We hope you enjoy it.
