Giant Golden Stoneflies on the Stillwater.

Hey out there! We usually don’t get to fish the Stillwater when the Giants are in full swing due to high water. This is one of the rare years that the water is clear this early. It’s still very juicy (high and fast). Wade fishing is very, very challenging. Float fishing is excellent. Fish ate the big dry fly well, but the dropper nymph was key. Try a Stimulator, Yellow PMX or any foam and rubber leg dry. The Montana prince and pheasant tail killed as a dropper. Stonefly nymphs took some bigger fish in the morning.

This beautiful Giant Golden was on my hat this morning.
