Default West Branch of Delaware Nymphing

Hey everyone,

I recently got into fly fishing and have been fishing on the west branch of the Delaware mainly nymphing. I caught my first trout yesterday on a #16 bh pheasant tail. I also landed a small trout on a #14 bh prince but that was all the action I have had in the past month I have been fly fishing. I have been using a 9 foot leader with a split shot when necessary to keep the nymph right on the bottom with an indicator on 75% of the time. Other nymphs I have tried are 14-16 bh hares ear, 14-16 assorted color copper johns, and a sulphur nymphomaniac. Does anyone have any information to help me get a little more action?
