I usually use a black or grey sprout midge, or a jujubee adult midge(yes I said jujubee adult, see charlie cravens website for tying info). Both work well as emergers in the film. If the flows ever pickup, then nymphing is the ticket. I like a size 12 or 14 flashback hares ear followed by a BWO or midge pupa. I plan on getting out sometime this week, PM me if you would like to meet up.
Yeah, I've had luck at both of those places as well. I also like fishing up off overland. It has just been so low in town, I have been doing most of my fishing up the canyon.

Good call on the jujubee adult midge. That looks like an awesome pattern for some of those slow shallow pools.
