This question already has an answer here:

I'm starting to use tmux, and I already love it. But if I could search through scrollback history it would be even better (e.g. like in iTerm2). Is there a way to do it as of now?

When you're in scrollback mode, you can use ctrl-S to search. More useful information here: How can i search within the output buffer of a tmux shell?
