If you check out the thread "Which fly would you choose", you'll find the answer isn't very conclusive! Although it does seem that the region you fish in, the type of water you're fishing and the size of the trout that live there have a pretty strong bearing on the choices! You could start by reading some of the answers in that section.

What area are you from and what waters would you be fishing?

I am going to say, it depends on Stillwater or River, but I will use nymphs on both, I rarely us streamers on rivers (I know I should, but I usually use bamboo, so I don't)
Lakes however, streamers are a must!

I pretty much only fish streamers, i would catch more fish if i fished nymphs more, but i enjoy throwing large flies.

When guiding clients here on the Snake I use dries about 85%- 90% of the time. When fishing myself I use streamers unless there is a good hatch going on, then I'll switch rods and tactics. When float fishing I always have my 5wt ready to go with dries. I use my 6wt for streamers.

When I lived on the Main Line outside Philly I fished mainly dries and nymphs. Size of the water and the fish are factors to consider. As well as insect activity.

On rivers and streams I like to fish dries. site fishing with nymphs being a close second choice option.
For lakes it would be streamers.

my FAVORITE technique is using dry flies on small to medium sized sierra streams, and sight fishing to the trout. not always the most productive, but as you asked, certainly my favorite.
