Fly Fishing on the Bighorn River in Montana
Fly fishing the Bighorn River is not the kind of river to befuddle all but the elite fishermen. It offers one of the largest concentrations of wild Browns and Rainbow trout in the west.
Not to say these fish don’t provide challenge, but alongside one of our Orvis-endorsed guides you are almost guaranteed a fair share of fly fishing photo ops. History suggests that you could bring in a trout between 18" and 22".
Entering Montana more than 150 miles downstream from its origin in Wyoming, it flows into Bighorn Lake, formed by the Yellowtail Dam. "The Horn," as anglers call it, is nationally recognized as one of the premier trout streams in the United States, and Forrester's Bighorn River Resort happens to have the best access to the finest Bighorn River fishing spots.
One of the completely unique offerings of Forrester's Bighorn River Resort and lodge is taking one of our high-country excursions to one of our remote outpost camps in the Cloud Peak Wilderness.
