Default Re: New to fly fishing. Help please!

thanks a lot guys. i stopped in at the local fly shop and they told me as far as trout are concerned, they have mostly cleared out of my area so i would have to head north some which i may end up doing. however they told me the smallmouths are starting to roll in and take over. they said to go with streamers like the woolie bugger and maybe a few dry flies like a deer hair popper. im wondering if there are any other nice flies to try out for smallmouth? and it has really been raining a lot lately, is that bad for fishing? or can i still make out fine when the water is murkey the day after it has rained?

thanks for the charts mark that should be a huge help!
and davo, i actually found those books at the bookstore the other day and i have been reading up on some streams in my area. thanks for the help!
