Stillwater River Report 5/29/2017

The river has fluctuated the past week or so creating some windows of lower flows and greater clarity due to the generally cooler weather. That’s likely to change though, as full on run off is due, and with the return of warmer temperatures, is likely here to stay. Anglers will likely need to seek other options for a while.

There might be a spot or two to fish on the upper river or tributaries, but that’s probably it. It’s been tough to move fish with all of the fluctuations in volume, temperature, and clarity. If there’s any fishing to be had at all, try dark colored buggers, san juan worms and rubber leg nymph patterns like knotty girls, girdle bugs and yuk bugs.
