Stillwater River Fishing Report

Friday, January 6, 2017

Current Conditions:

The StillwaterRiver is low but trout are moving into the deeper slots and nymphing has been productive. This is a colder river ice shelves can make wading treacherous. Other fisheries tend to be a better bet but if you find some clear water on a mild day it can still be worth a try.

The Month Ahead:

Fishing will be tough for most of the winter with ice shelves and slush.

Long Term Fishing Forecast:

The Stillwater is a relatively cold river and isn’t as productive as some other fisheries in the region in the winter months. April will result in better results but we wouldn’t recommend a long drive to get there until later in the spring when water temps produce more active fish.
