BTW: I've read that a dry and nymph combo works well, maybe a #12 Light Cahill and #16 PT nymph. Have you tried it and does it work well?
You are correct in where to start and park. horseshoe bend) ( I would start early and expect to spend the day, can be great fishing) remember no were can you exit the stream and get back to the car without wading back. it may seam that you could climb back to the top of the trail it may be to thick and more than one hill to climb very deceiving while walk the trail. expect to wade and fish all day carry food and water for the day. also very slick limestone bottom. I would suggest a wading staff. enjoy your day , be safe let's us know with a good report,
