Fishing a spring creek

Lately, I have been getting out of my comfort zone of fishing freestone streams all the time and I have been making some trips to limestone spring creeks, usually in Blair county. These creeks flow slower I'm having some trouble trying to figure out how to approach and fish these types of streams. Any pointers on a leader setup, flies, technique, etc. would be appreciated

There are many variables that are more pronounced or critical when fishing limestone vs freestone creeks here in PA.

My best advice for a short answer for limestone streams....
1. Fish upstream.
2. Avoid wading as much as possible.

I'd also recommend a good book: Mike Heck's Spring Creek Strategies.
