The Stillwater River flow has dropped enough float fish. Flows are below 3000 CFS. The water is cold and fast, so wade fishing is a challenge. Fishing from Cliffswallow to Johnson’s is beginning to turn on. Fish are eating a #14 yellow humpy, #10 yellow stimulator and #10 PMX. Dry fly fishing has been better than nymphing, but a pheasant tail or prince dropper will get eaten.

All area rivers and streams are rising. The Yellowstone is blown out. The Stillwater is fishable, but rising fast. It won’t fish much longer. Rock Creek is fairly clear, but also rising. Nymphing the deep holes is producing, and the streamer is getting hammered in the late afternoon. Looks like lake fishing soon will be our only option. For now, bring out your dirty water fly box. Girdle bugs, yuk bugs, San Juan worms, Bitch Creek, etc.
