I’ve been Stillwater fishing for 30 years and I still learned a thing or two. I would point out that May and June can be be some of the best days fishing damsel fly nymphs inches below the surface a damsel drys. The takes on the dries are savage. June is also a great time, on the right lake, for Callibaetis hatch’s as well, some of the dry fly days I’ve ever had have been on callibaetis. You’ll probably rack up more 24” fish at ice off but June on light tackle can be super as well. You used to carry one of the best crippled calli flies, it had some foam at the head, absolute killer.
