Wading Day Trip to the Stillwater River in Dayton, Ohio. Dayton has several MetroParks along the Stillwater. If you want to ride-/drive-share, meet at the Staples/Shoe Carnival parking lot across from Florence Mall at 7:45AM. We’ll figure out car arrangements and head north on I-75. Eat breakfast at home and pack a lunch and plenty of water. 7’ to 9’ 5- or 6-wt fly-fishing outfits, with floating lines, waders optional, wading boots a must, wading staff will be helpful. Any smallmouth poppers/sliders (Sneaky Petes, Betts Poppers, etc), dry flies (large Wulff flies, big mayflies, Stimulators, etc), streamers (Wooly Buggers, Crystal Buggers, Smallmouth buggers (with rubber legs), Leeper Lizards, Clouser minnows, etc), nymphs (Casual Dress, Bitch Creek, big stoneflies, hellgrammites, etc).
Miami Valley Fly Fishers website describes the Middle Section at http://mvff.us/stillwater.html. I’ve emailed one of their directors to get some advice about fishing the river. I’ll update with any relative info in the comments.
