Stillwater River

The Stillwater River begins its journey high in the Beartooth Mountains and tumbles its way to join the Yellowstone at Columbus, Montana. The Stillwater is slightly larger than the Boulder river and the fishing is very similar on both rivers. Because of the swift currents and abundant rocks we use rafts to navigate the Stillwater river. During the summer it produces some of the best dry fly fishing in Montana.

The Stillwater is a about an hour and a half drive from Bozeman and a one hour drive from Livingston. Although it is a little bit out of the way,our guides find that many of our guests really appreciate spending a day on this river. The dry fly fishing on the Stillwater is often worth the drive and we consider a float on this river to offer classic Montana fly fishing complete with great views and big trout.

There is something addictive about fast furious action to nice sized trout on large attractor dry flies. If you enjoy watching hard charging rainbows and browns crushing a royal wulff then the Stillwater River float fishing trip might be for you!
