Last Hurrah on the Stillwater?

Well, the Stillwater and other area streams are rising steadily. I floated the Stilly the last three days. Thursday was good, Friday was excellent and Saturday was also very good. Saturday, it rose about 4 inches while I was fishing it. The water was still clear and we even got into a short baetis hatch with some rising fish. A yellow Stimulator with any beadhead dropper killed it. Fish ate the Stimulator sporadically all day, even during the baetis hatch. The river below Absarokee is very dirty, but upstream was still clear Saturday evening. If you fish below Absarokee, use a black streamer or big nymphs, such as the Yuk Bug, Montana Nymph or any dark colored stonefly nymph.

Nancy was a real trooper on a very wet day. It paid off in a big way!

This chunky rainbow wasn't the biggest Scott caught, but it looks like a Big Horn fish!

This chunky rainbow wasn’t the biggest Scott caught, but it sure has some muscle on it!

Only saw three other boats in three days. I love this place!
