Really interesting.

I really like the hatch and the fly pattern charts at the bottom of the page.

Thanks, Matt. Hope all is well with you and that Santa treated you right.

Hi Louis, I'm well and hope you and your family is too. My wife outdid herself and got me a ton of the gadgets I wanted for fly fishing. I'm in the winter tying mode now and am working on Sulfurs. Finished a dozen each #16 & #18 Sulfur duns recently and am now working a dozen each the same fly and sizes but in the emerger.

I'm keeping my eyes on the Erie creeks and there has still been some good action. I'll probably go up if there is a period of 2 - 3 days of 40 degree weather.

The Big Horn used to be a phenomenal river, maybe it still is, I haven't fished there since 1993. It had just phenomenal nymph fishing. If you had reasonable nymph skills you could hammer fish all day long. The dry fly fishing was equally as good but the river got so much publicity that it became so crowded that it was difficult to go out and have a good experience. Many of the guides would camp out on a run or pool for hours and their buddies would be stacked up behind them to get in the pool. So as soon as one guide boat another would slip in behind him.

I used to stay at this campground and Googled the name of the place to see if it was still there and this page was one on the web site. BTW if anyone is thinking of going there it fishes best if you at least have a pontoon boat to get from one run to the next. It is way too deep to wade across and since it flows through the Crow reservation one can't go walking along the shore above the high water mark without running into issues.
