Techniques 

Big dries/droppers in the fast water, at high water during the warmer months!!
Attractor nymphs such as worms, eggs, big ptails, big caddis in the deeper slower water in the colder months!
Fast sink tips(atleast 25 ft sink tip) full sink lines working really well with olive and black streamers.

Seven-day forecast 

Weather looks better and better every day. Expect some bug activity in the afternoon on the warmer days as water levels drop. Mostly stones and midges!
