Try nymphing deep during the day with a two fly rig.- On your two fly nymph rig start with Rubber Leg Stone Fly nymph and an Egg Pattern as a dropper. - Streamer fishing is a great way to cover water and to find fish. - Swing streamers for Trout behind exposed boulders in all the deeper riffles & pools. - Then go back and deep nymph over any river section that produced takes on streamers.
