Hit the Stillwater yesterday, first up north then more in my area. Up north the river is so low I don't link the fish can make it through the riffles. I found one good pool to fish, but it was so isolated that I think it had already been fished out by the locals. Then about to call the quits and put up the big :S I decided to hit more in my area. Got one SM about 10 in and tried to wade some other spots, again the water is too low. My suggestion for any one who fishes or is planning on fishing this water way, with the water this low don't gamble on places you haven't fished yet. If you know where to go, where the water is deep try there, don't spend two hours tromping though ankle deep water in search of a waist deep hole that doesn't even provide any fish. When out on a hike today in an area I had not fished yet, kind of scouting it out. Brought my casting pole and tried a few cast, on the third I was able to land a SM, again about 10 to 12 in, got anouther good hit a couple of minutes later got off . Not my most successful couple of days but, hey at least I have a new hole to wade. Also, I have a question. Both fish I caught literally almost swallowed the lure whole. Both fish were released but I needed pliers to get the hooks out and really tore up the poor fish's moths. Any suggestions on how I can help the fish survive after having to tear them up like that.
