Water Dropping Fast!

The Stillwater and other local streams are dropping fast. Wade fishing is still out, but float fishing is definitely an option. It will be fast and furious. Clarity is good above Absarokee. Good time for a combo white water/fly fishing trip. Try a big stonefly pattern on top with a beadhead dropper right on the bank. (Not two feet out, as close as you can get it!) Another good bet is a stonefly nymph about three feet under an indicator. Fish this rig a couple of feet off the bank.

Try a Jack Cabe, Stimulator and any foam rubber leg in brown or tan for the dry fly. Large half backs, girdle bugs, Montana stones or just a brown wooly bugger will work for the stonefly nymph. Rubber leg Hare’s Ears, and the Montana Prince are good choices for a bead head dropper.
