Bighorn Gets Boost in Flows for First Time in 4 Years

June 2, 2005 By: Marshall Cutchin

“Look for the increased flows to flush a lot of underwater weeds and algae downriver. It will also flood side channels and change trout distribution. It generally takes a few days for the river to settle down and fish well again.” Good news for this fishery that has had its share of negative drought-related publicity.
