Fishing Report Updated May 2, 2022

This Stillwater River fishing report is valid from May 2 until about May 20.

Still running low and cold, but should produce on streamers and stonefly nymphs in the larger pools. Once flows break 500cfs at Absarokee, floating and chucking streamers should be very productive. We’ll post the next report around May 20 when this is likely to happen.

  • Absarokee Streamflows: Flows over 4000cfs get sketchy above Absarokee. Flows 4000-2000 are best floated above Absarokee. 2000-1200 are good everywhere. 1200-800 are best below Absarokee but doable above. 800-450 are doable downstream of Absarokee, with the precise cutoff between 500 and 450 depending on how much weight is in your raft and how willing you are to drag the boat through shallow areas.
