This was our first visit to the Bighorn. We booked through Yellow Dog Fly Fishing and they assured us Bighorn Anglers would be supply a guide attentive to both our levels. I am a beginner and my husband has been fly fishing for many, many years. Brian was our guide and he could not have been better. He was entertaining... More

I want to thank Pete for an Incredible fishing trip. I quit counting after about 20 minutes. He definitely knew what flys to put on and he said he had just tied them himself. This is the first time that I have ever had two Browns hooked at the same time. What a great day. Can't wait until I go... More

The staff at Bighorn Angler Lodge are all top notch, super friendly, and very helpful. Fishing guides were well prepared and equipped for anything. Meals were all fantastic. We had 4 guys in the lower level of their overlook cabin and it was spacious, very nice/new, and had a great view from outside. I'd recommend being very specific on what... More

We spent a week at the bighorn angler. It was during off season time. We showed up at 4 P.M. And our cabin was not ready. All of the staff was very unfriendly during our stay. We had to ask for clean towels, more trash bags, and there was no propane for our first night. Then when they finally got... More

My friends and I love going out to the bighorn. Pete and bryan were incredibly commodating and helpful in the shop. Lodges are very nice. They got us the right flies to get on a lot of fish. We rented driftboats after getting a guided trip. Shuttle is included in the rental, which usually isn't the case at many other... More

I hired several guides from the Bighorn Angler and I have never been disappointed. I have also hired guides from other outfitters and have been disappointed. I read one review that the owners were not very personable. I agree they don't hawk you when you come into their store. I have always been asked if I needed anything and then... More

I am part of a group of fisherman that just finished our 9th annual trip staying with the Bighorn Angler. The quality of our experience exceeded expectations once again. Being able to have our dinner on-site is a huge upgrade. The new chef is almost unbelievable. Dinner all six nights were incredible. The group of guides gets even better every... More

Planned a couple days of fishing on the Horn with friends from college. Shelly was outstanding about accommodating us. We planned on 3 of us but changed to 4 last minute and Angler was great about making the change okay. Loved the Keurig machine coffee in the morning. Simple. Clean, big TV and comfortable beds. All we needed. We will... More
