Stillwater River Turning On

The Stilly is dropping and very clear above the Rosebud convergence. Fish are starting to eat the big bug on top. Golden Stone patterns produced well in the afternoon today. Any beadhead I tried as a dropper got eaten. Slow in the morning, good fishing in the afternoon. Goodbye bobbers, it’s stonefly time. Good numbers of PMD’s around, but still too high and fast to effectively fish them. Try a yellow stimulator with a beadhead zug bug dropper.

Be warned that wade fishing is very tough and boat fishing is very fast. Not a good idea for novice boaters to attempt yet.
