Well depends on the water I'm fishing, and the access to the water, but I usually go downstream and work my way back upstream.

sometimes the brush forces you to fish down stream, be very quite, that is usually the main factor for me.

You can catch them on drys now also, caddis work all year, as do stimulaters, I fish a lot with buggers, nymphs, san juan worms,

and glo-balls.

Did not see any signs of spawning fish, but the trout should start anytime.

Tim, what is the recommended gear/tackle? Line size, leader, tippet etc? I've struggled finding the right combo.

I use a 6' 5wt Fiberglas or bamboo, 9' leader, 5X tippet for nymphs, and 6X for dries.

Any good smooth reel will work fine, as long as it matches the rod.
