I think patience applies to all trout fishing. Dukes has fish stacked up due to low water so stealthiness is really key. Stay low, and fish smart. Work the inside seam, then the middle, then the outside. Fish the tailouts first and then work your way up the run. Don't overline the fish. When you hook one, try and work it out the backside of the pool to keep from spooking the others. Granted this can be hard when one of the pigs grabs your fly.

Headed up to Duke's for the first time on Nov. 20. Thanks for this thread. I plan on putting some of this info to use.

Default spot on

I will say that 2flys post is pretty much spot on. I will however say that my experience the last two times at Dukes on section 1, is a lot like the Davidson. Fish have gotten use to pressure. May initially freak out, then will come right back and settle in, be still and they will start to feed. Even had a pig on running in a run, and two other trout were following it, and one grabbed my dropper fly. Double in the Net!

One of the runs in particular has about 15-20 fish of nice size in it. was careful on approach etc, got up to run started nymphing. Caught a fish, fish freaked out, 30 seconds later all back in a group and taking my flies again...pretty crazy the first time, but to have it happen again for a second time led me to the conclusion that section 1 fish have been under considerable pressure and have gotten use to it just like the Davidson beside the hatchery.

Congratulations on two fish to hand at the same time!

Good analogy regarding the Davidson. It's incredible how much pressure that section by the hatchery receives. The fish and the fishermen are stacked up like cord wood there.

As stated above have patience and take your time, they'll get used to you, just match Color and size and you'll rock it. Agreed water much better fishing stained and high.
Have fun.
