Another suggestion I have is that when walking upstream along the stream bank, carry the fly rod with the rod tip facing backward.

This is why. Suppose a right handed fisher is walking upstream along the left left bank, carrying the rod facing forward in his right hand. This is typically the way a fly rodder will carry his rod since it is then ready to cast should he see a rise. When you do this, the rod tip can wave over the edge of the stream and spook a fish that lying along the bank.

If you carry the rod facing backward, you will not spook fish ahead of you with the rod tip.

With respect to the two specific questions that you asked: Yes, upstream casts with a long leader would probably be helpful.

Silver great post on the trouts eye view! I picked the same spot as you on the puzzle as my first choice but as an alternate I choose the bottom of the run to the left. To much aeration to ignore as well as a good bank!

i know that trout season in WI is now closed...

since this thread has been reborn i would suggest staying hidden in the grass and maybe a long rod with a dapping technique?

are you talking about some streams close to Milwaukee or Waukesha county?
