Default Tammen and Horseshoe this past weekend. How does this work?

Sunday afternoon I drive up to Tammen. Release was over at noon, I got there about 1pm. First time there and was surprised at the crowd.

The release was scheduled to stop at noon and start back up at 4pm

So I found a spot within 10 minutes then someone moved in 30 yards on each side of me. Ok - I'm a social person. Finally they spread out a little and this old man with a spinning rod come about 15 yards to my left and at one point actually cast across my line. He caught a decent fish. He just grinned, I'm not sure he spoke English.

Well I caught a little rainbow and one other nice one and missed a couple of others. I was fishing a hopper dropper with a nymph I call a blue dot. A copy of Prowlers Blue Back after it caught 30 fish.

So I packed up and went to Horseshoe. I got there at about 4 and waited for the water to drop. After about 4:40 or so I waded out but the water was stained. Couldn't even see the bottom. Is this normal? There were some showers in the area so I wasn't sure if that was the problem or if it is always like that when the release stops. I tried everything. Different colors, dries, Streamers, everything.
Then I hooked a #16 nymph in my finger past the barb. Ended up having to clamp hemo's on it and just pull. No, the blood in the water didn't help. Fished till 8pm and gave up.
So any ideas? Trying to learn the river and releases, but it sure was muddied up.
