BusBus,
Sounds like you're doing well, stick with it. I love fast water and look at it this way. The fish that are laying in a soft spot in fast, shallow water are usually active feeders. Those laying at the bottom in deep water may be a little harder to coax into taking your fly. Don't pass up the fast water and hit all the spots where the current is broken by a rock or a small trough on the bottom.

When you're fishing a riffle of fast broken water, look for any little areas where the water looks calm. Even spots as small as a dinner plate.
Expect a fish to be in every one of them

Ray: Sounds like you are catching onto streamer fishing pretty well, just keep looking for water situations like that and keep dredging that streamer through anything that looks fishy and most of all remember the type of water where you are getting hook ups. Two really great books that you might want to consider to learn more on reading water are: Reading Trout Water by Dave Hughes, and Reading Waters by Gary Borger, both excellent reads.

Someone on this or another form has a tag "The more I fish, the luckier I get!" Think about it.
