Comments: Have been out about 10 times this year and water conditions yesterday were excellent. Good flow with ever so slightly elevated water levels. Clarity was good but not crystal clear.

Lots of feeding on top in the afternoons on the sunny days recently. Size 18 and smaller have been my best bet for dries. Anything bigger hasn’t been producing for me. Typically rig a dry dropper with a small midge size 20-24. 9 times out of 10 they take the midge or nymph underneath.

Yesterday I used two dries and only the smaller tailing fly size 18 was taken. As the sun set I used a larger flashy egg size 12 and that produced a number of strikes as well. Was out between 4:30-sunset.
