Cover a lot of water and find the pools holding active feeding fish. Go up in elevation. Higher gradient means deeper pools which keep the brookies happy during low flow.

It can be very difficult this time of year, though. When the water is low and clear, look for feeding positions under structure, like boulders or trees. You're competing against raccoons, snakes, and birds moreso than other anglers. Look for spots that the trout can both feed and get away from natural predators. Use weighted nymphs to get down deep enough.
