I never really found valley that hard, not harder than any other streams. They will eat just about any nymph. Id say if your getting skunked your probably wading too much. Try to stay out of the water as much as you can, keep a low profile, and target trout in swift water, heads of pools, that sort of thing. Walts worm is deadly. Oh and fish early in the morning, first light. Your chances dramatically increase if your the first one on the water. If its been a slow morning, its usually because I have been fishing behind someone. Stagger_Lee, i might hit Valley this weekend, id be happy to show you the ropes.

I never found Valley difficult either. At least not from a "pickiness" standpoint. Because of the nature of the stream, "spookiness" can be an issue. It's generally slow, shallow, and clear, and featureless so the fish are in pods. Not a good combo.

So it's downright easy if you can get some color. If you get it when it's clear, it can kind of limit you to the deeper/faster spots or force you into super stealth mode.
