Decided to scratch the itch i have been having and finally making a trip down to the current. I havent been down to the current in awhile so i dont know what flies are hot right now and was looking for advice. Im thinking about a hopper but are terrestrials doing good? Wondering what kind of dropper rigs would be hot right now? Any Dries or any other kind of flies would be hot? any advice is much appreciated.

Trico's were coming off in the morning last weekend so they might rising then. The water's fairly low and clear so you may get a few to come up for hoppers or other attractors. A hopper or other high floating dry with a nymph hung off it could be a good choice. I noticed they weren't too picky in the morning but by afternoon they wanted my smaller flies. If the dry/dropper bite isn't happening nymph as deep as you can. Use something heavy to get it down with a small dropper. I think depth matters more than the actual fly but you can't go wrong with a pheasant tail. It's gonna be really hot so I think the best advice I can give is to fish the shade. The fish want to stay out of the heat just like everyone else so you should find plenty of them hiding out in the shady banks.
