Zebra midge drifted deep in the top of the pools where the water spills in from above is a sure bet for a larger fish. Make sure it gets down quick as those fish tuck up in there to stay out of harms way.
Yes it will be right there at the pa-co. We are camping there for a week! Lot's of fishing to do while I'm there Any other suggestions on what flies to use down there? Sizes? What size bugger should I use with a 5x tippet?
There is certainly something in angling that tends to produce a serenity of the mind. ~Washington Irving

Men and fish are alike. They both get into trouble when they open their mouths.
