Fishing Conditions

October 14, 2017

The Stillwater has been flowing consistently and the temperatures have increased back to the 50's. The worm rubber legs rig will be an alright option as well as buggers in blacks and olives. Now that the water has stabilized a bit and temperatures are back up, look for baetis to be out there in full force. A size 16 purple haze or any smaller blue winged olive patern will pick up the sippers for you.
