This time of year? I fish a dry-dropper dropper. Elk Hair Caddis, Dark Olive Hares Ear, and some sort of caddis larvae/emerger pattern. Cover as much water as I can.

Today I fished the tully which I rarely fish. I had my rig setup, and I stood by the water for a minute or two to observe rises, bugs, other fisherman, and water. Then, as cliche' as this sounds, I basically just tried to think like a trout would think. Where will the food be coming from, and where is the cold water with the most oxygen. Seemed to work well

cast directly across stream to far bank, let sink, keep rod high and lower as it swings. take a step down stream, do it again with the same amount of line out. No better way.

Sure, we can assiduously three-quarter our wets down stream, mend, and wait out each fly swing, which to my way of thinking, anyway, relegates to the angler to role of butler, rather than nemesis.
