Just a warning:

If you got the skunk earlier in the year, it didn't get any easier since then!

I'm holding off on my next trip until after a good rain.

From my experience, Valley fishes best with cloudy skies, after a rain, or when the water is flowing well. Bright skies and low/slow water are usually signs of a potentially frustrating day. Go there on a cloudy day and nymph a grey scud - San Juan Worm combo and you'll catch fish. Throw nymphs and dry's in tight spots close to the bank where all the tree roots and log's are, those are generally the most productive areas for me.

That's funny; after getting skunked two or three times on valley, I also caught four fish last time I went out.

Better yet, with Jay as my witness, I caught the biggest one on a Humpinator.

What are some good flies for the colder weather on valley. I still haven't caught a fish there on a dry, just scuds, but I was wondering if you guys had any other flies that work good going into october.

Terrestrials still work. Once that stops, perhaps some BWOs and midges. I've never fished it in the cold months, so this will be my first year.

I didn't start fishing valley till last December, but I remember that egg patterns were working then. I don't know when spawning starts, but I'm probably going to start throwing egg patterns come late October.
