Stillwater River Fishing Report

Current Conditions:

The Stillwater River is low and clear and cold. Baetis hatches aren’t showing up in strong abundance yet but should be showing up by mid April. Colder flows result in slow mornings. Fishing is generally best after lunch. Expect to target trout in slower runs and deeper water.

The Month Ahead:

The fishing will improve into early May until run off arrives in late May.

Long Term Fishing Forecast:

Run off on the Stillwater generally ends in late June. There can be very good float fishing in July and early August following run off. This is a nice attractor dry fly fishery.
