Dry fly fishing what is left is best done from down stream from the fish, presenting the fly as a dead drift. Nymph fishing below indicators with 9?-4X leaders (Orvis Superstrong # KM0714-61) a BB split shot seems to be the right weight. Orvis' Heliios Rod with it's strong backbone, is really handling these bigger fish very well. I prefer the Helios 6 weight. (ZG Helios 906-4 Tip 9.5)
Temps in the 70's and 80's with light wind. Great fishing weather! The snow should be gone for awhile...
