The Bighorn River is one of the best tail-water fisheries in the world. The Bighorn begins its journey in the Bighorn Mountains at the foot of Yellowtail Dam, flowing 70 miles across the plains to join the Yellowstone River. The first 13 miles below the dam provide some of the greatest concentrations of trout found in Montana. The Bighorn is a popular fishing destination. Our favorite time of year to experience this river is in the Spring. The river remains clear and fishable during these times of spring run-off and high water. This is also a good time of year to see fewer crowds, on what can be a busy river come summertime.
The Bighorn River is located approximately 200 miles southeast of Bozeman. Our trips to the Bighorn are a minimum of 3 days. Our Bighorn River Guide Rate is higher than our Standard Rate to provide for guide’s transportation and lodging.
