Have you found a particular size/color that works better than others? I've heard that there's a small white worm that lives in the Swift, but I haven't really done any investigating, so to speak.

Pink orange or red. Pretty much any size. I use a full sink line too.

I was back there this afternoon, and the Chubby Chernobyl slayed 'em. I didn't have a chance to try any SJWs, because the 'bows were eager to rise this afternoon. I tried a dry-dropper set up at first and scored a cute little 8" brookie on the dropper, but after a few spectacular refusals on the dry I decided to go with the CC on its own.

The 'bows south of Rte 9 got some shoulders on 'em!

I think switching to something "bigger" if you were having trouble matching the hatch was a good move. If I'm eating Doritos and someone sticks some Pringles under my nose, I don't want them, I'll keep on eating the Doritos;but, if they stick a big juicy cheeseburger under my nose- I might just forget the Doritos and grab the cheeseburger.

I hear you guys about the Doritos vs. Pringles vs. Cheeseburger thing. I went back on Saturday, and flying ants were the ticket.

Terrestrials seem to be the key currently on the Swift.

Well a trip to Acadia got nixed so I am likely going to be out on the Swift this weekend. Throwing my tent in the car and hoping for the best. Really wanted to fish for striper in Maine but the campground schedules were not amenable to mine :/

Not sure how great it's gonna be what with the Y pool filling up quickly but I will certainly try some flying ants!
