Stillwater River Report 06/03/19
Warmer weather and rain events have resulted in a significant increase in flows and lack of clarity. Runoff is here to stay and it’s likely to continue to climb with the warm weather this week. There’s a lot of snow melt to come out. If the upper river stays clear enough to fish, fish the very edge seams. Nymphing is likely the best option, with black, brown and coffee colored rubber leg patterns like girdle bugs and Pat’s rubber legs, or a san juan worm. Darker color streamer patterns like black buggers dead drifted are an option too. When it reaches a certain point, it’s best to just stay away from it and search out smaller tributaries, tail waters and lakes to fish.
