    I have been having success on nymphs in the 16-20 size range Pheasant tails, Lighting bugs, prince nymphs and midges. Almost all your strikes will be subsurface. You can run a dry dropper or a nymph rig under a indicator, I would recommend doing whatever you are most comfortable with. About any place that looks deep enough to hold fish probably has fish in it. The main thing is to get your flies down close to the bottom.

      Have 2 droppers! One junk one natural (recommend a small soft hackle for the natural and an egg for the junk). Then find which the fish like better and keep that one and switch out the non producing one to large or small junk/natural. Hope that made sense and best of luck

          Beaded junk flies fished in deeper holes, with extra weight on the line, under a very small strike indicator, dredging the bottom, worked for me on Tuesday of last week at Smith. Caught a bunch on a tan mop, green egg, pink squirmy, big olive and green girdle bug, green weenie, orange sucker spawn, red sucker spawn, and others. Friday was another story. Tried same flies, had several on, but none in the net. Maybe time to try something other than junk flies at Smith. Left Smith at noon on Friday and went to Ami, nothing, nada, until just before 4 when I caught a few on green egg and pink squirmy just above the Hwy 53 bridge. No luck at the hole in front of the handicap parking area. Wasn't able to try my favorite hole upstream because there were several people already fishing there.
