Stillwater River Report 5/11/2017

With the recent warmer weather, flows have shot up and clarity declined. While runoff is likely here to stay, there are some fluctuations here and there when there are a few days of cooler days and nights. Next week’s forecast looks favorable.

The upper river is amazingly clear, so fishing above the Rosebud confluence is recommended. Also look to fish smaller tributaries, lakes and tailwaters. If there is an opening to fish, try dark colored buggers, san juan worms, and rubber leg nymph patterns.
