Yes, the Ryzen 5 2600 can support faster cards than the GTX 1060 3GB. So, technically you could say the GTX 1060 3GB is the bottleneck. The game doesn't have a fps cap, does it?
What are the frame rates you seem stuck at?
What screen rez are you gaming at?

I second what clutchc said, that CPU can handle a whole lot more than what you are throwing at it. How many graphics cards can your motherboard support? I like using crossfire/SLI setup for my PCs, two weaker, cheaper GPUs can combine for a strong performance.

The 1060 (3 GB) was quite a bit weaker than the 1060 (6 GB) variant, and, likely is simply not capable of higher FPS at that res...; once a GPU has reached saturation, faster CPUs do almost nothing at increasing frame rates...; generally , if you lower resolution and/or details/textures and get notably higher FPS, then your GPU is obviously a limiting factor...

so would it be better to get a 6gb version to prevent this
Depending on the game, maybe. The performance difference between the 3GB and 6GB versions ranges from almost nothing (~6%) to a quite a bit (~28%) from the results I've seen. But if you already have a 3GB, it doesn't make sense to spend ~$200+ for a small improvement.
