Can't speak from being there, but check out the TCO Fly Shop Stream Reports before you leave, couldn't hurt...

Here's some links that I keep bookmarked:

I was just at Spring Creek(today and last Saturday) so I can give you some info. The creek is a little low and clear but the dry fly action has been good. I would take some ants in size 14 and 16, beetles and caddis flies in size 18 to 14. Tie up some greenie weenies in size 18 through 14. I caught quite a few on microcaddis nymphs (Mike Heck pattern worked great). Basically use rusty dubbing, some peacock herl, partridge feathers and a beadhead. Size 16 and 18 worked the best. Wade deliberately and slowly. While the fish are receptive, the low water makes them scatter if you make a wake or splash.
Hope this helps.

You'll find low and clear conditions typical of this time of year. Not sure if Spruce is on your list to fish but fish there were hitting pretty much any dry fly I tied on the other day. Nymphing did not work nearly as well.

Spruce is hit and miss. The few times I have been there 3 or 4 fishermen show up then its over. Not much water to fish there all day.
