I normally go big and ugly myself fishing leeches and girdle bugs. I carry them with and without beads so i can fish them in different depths. As far as nymphs, I've had success on small frenchies and a hot butt pheasant tail variation I tie. I've also done well with squirmies and small eggs but it's hard to beat a good ole girdle bug or black mohair leech so I always have one of them on but I am normally euro nymphing. I know a lot of guys do well dry dropping and fishing nothing but small stuff but I go with what works for me. If it ain't broke don't fix it. I will say that I go with all natural colors and no flash. I also normally fish black beads instead of gold, silver or copper. This is just my .02 and what works for me.

Thanks. Goodluck this Saturday. Weather looks like it is shaping up for a nice weekend.

Thanks, yea I have heard both depending on how clear the water is that day. Thanks for the advice. Will have to give those a try as well.

Section 4 is the most downstream section. From what I understand Section 4 is Shackelford Road to right past where Alabama branch comes in(Cathy Ellis trail and waterfall). Section 3 is covered bridge to Shackelford. Section 2 is just past the beehives(near road) walking trail to creek to covered bridge. Section 1 is rope across stream about 1/2 mile from cabins to checkin.

We did really well up there early this month on section 1, and pretty much everything in the box was working. Most of our fish were caught on big gross attractor patterns, but my big rainbow at the end of the album took a size 16 rainbow warrior. My advice for Duke’s is basically, don’t buy too much into the hype about how educated those fish are— they’re just fish. Treat them like any other trout you fish for— make careful approaches, nice drifts, and most of all be persistent. I cast to the monster bow all afternoon on and off, and he finally took (probably just to get rid of me)
