Our time in the Bighorn River area near Fort Smith MT was an absolute blast. We toured the Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area, sampled local food, stayed in a campground of nothing but fly fishermen and had an epic fishing time on the Bighorn River. Our trip with Merritt Harris of Bighorn Trout Shop was beyond amazing. Big, wild brown and rainbow trout were in every run, riffle and pool. We sampled indian fry bread at our usual stop near the Little Bighorn National Battlefield Monument. Cottonwood Camp served as our basecamp for our time in the area. It was a stone’s throw from the Bighorn so each evening we’d fish until we couldn’t see our flies anymore. Then we’d throw a streamer hoping to feel one more tug before heading back to the SaraLinda. We hope you enjoy the short music video of highlights of our trip. For now, we are on to Bozeman MT and the Gallatin River.
