I was down last week during the weekdays (I try to avoid the weekends as much as possible) and the crowds were pretty light. With the water level low and crystal clear, and the bright sunny skies and hot weather, the fishing was slow but steady. Regardless, I still had a great time and caught a lot of fish. There was not a lot of dry fly activity, I saw almost no hatches except one evening for about 15 minutes. When they did start to hit the drys, you had to be quick, change flies, and get it out there fast, because after 5 or 10 minutes they would stop all surface activity. I saw a lot more sub-surface activity where they were hitting emergers (or something!).

I look in my fly box and think about what should guide my choice of the best fly: the amount/angle of sun on the water, the water temp & clarity, what bugs are hatching, what the fish might be eating, and what worked last time. Then I remember what an old man told me... " Ninety percent of what a trout eats is brown, fuzzy, about 1/2 inch long and underwater."
