MJ,back in the early 80's I remember a summer which was very hot and dry for
an extended period of time yet I had some great FF trips.1st of all where deep
pools(especially the heads of pools)I concentrated on those pools that had swift
runs coming into them.2nd.Fish the runs the swifter the better,and the intrance
to plunge pools--put the fly right into the white water(white water means aerated
water--cooler).3rd move up in altitude.4th here in Ga.I would concentrate on North
slope streams ie Noontootla--In Maryland if you don't have north slope streams I
would fish west slope streams.5 Fish the shade!Fish the cover.and fish undercuts
whether it be a log or a big rock---Remember that you need current and in my mind
the swifter the better.Finally,think small nothing larger than an 18,20-24 better
try ants,midges(emergers,pupae,drys)BWOs,and tiny nymphs(pheasant tails,GRHE).One
of the most important lessons I learned from years of bass fishing was think small
when its hot,and this has served me well in trout fishing small streams.Hope this helps.
