Fishing Conditions

June 22, 2019

 We drove by this past weekend to check out the conditions. They weren't good .  Although the Stillwater has dropped to 3070cfs due to the recent cold temps, this is still quite high and muddy. We will also see water levels rise shortly with warm temps, as the snowpack is still quite high in this area.  Some rivers will let you play in the mud but this isn't one of them. We may be able to get back on this one in late June or early July at this point.
