Flies that are working the best: Nymphs are still working great. EMB, Prince Nymph, Red Butt, Aurelia Prince, Anadromizer. Yuk Bug, black wooly buggers, and Tdf taxi. And as always big tube flies, intruders and leeches for the last hour of fishing.

Length and strength of tippet and leaders: 3 to 10 feet, 15 to 20 pounds.
