Out of Area: , by Andrew Harris: Rocky Mountain Dry Fly fishing: 4 stars
Today was our second full day at the Stillwater River Outpost fishing with outfitter Mike Hillygus.  Mike took me on a float on the Stillwater today.  The Stillwater is anything but still.  It's the most technical, high-gradient river I've ever seen anyone run in a hard drift boat.  The rowing might be challenging, but the fishing is fun and straightforward.  You can fish dry flies all day here, making quick casts to promising holding areas as you move along.  Our best action came on hoppers, especially Morrish's hopper in a size 8.  The fish I landed were from 9 to 16".  I hooked one much larger fish on a streamer, too.  This is a really fun river to fish and there are two other floats you can do when the water is higher.  I want to come back in July and see what the upper part of the river is like.
There are countless places to stop and fish
