Re: Trout tactics AFTER the rain...
Thanks everyone! I hit the fly shop last night for a few final supplies, in part based on your recommendations.
I've got a variety of med - large streamers in olive, brown & black.
I've got a variety of nymphs, including the larger ones I only rarely fish.
I'm bringing San Juan Worms along. I've got a few brown and red.
Finally, I've got some polyleader style leaders and a sinking line or two.
We'll have to scout the areas we like to fish and see what things are like. The North Branch below the dam is supposed to be running between 1,000 and 2,500 cfs for the next four days and between the hours of 10-4:00 while the dam is open. The Savage is supposed to be between 250-500 cfs, but may drop back in a day or two. There's still the Casselman and the areas above both dams that aren't running nearly as fast.
Whatever the conditions are... The truck is loaded. We're leaving at 4:00 in the morning.
Wish me luck and thanks again for all the advice!
Good things come to those who wade...
And YES... the answer is always, "It depends".
