"...I do not venture near the water during the Labor Day weekend; simply too crowded, most especially the LT.
On BT we've been using 'hopper/dropper" rigs in the pocket-water using short casts. We're fishing early in the day because water temperatures are an issue, then leaving for the LT. There a lots of hoppers; hope for a "hopper-wind" for them to haphazardly land in the water. Splat them down along the banks and give a couple of twitches
Flows on the LT were recently ramped-up to 179 cfs; a nice flow IMO. The six-week PMD hatch has faded; although there are still a few emerging along with other mayflies and a few caddis (...to size 10!). If you see a consistent riser, target it, but they are really selective. Alternately, use a dry dropper rig in the riffles and deeper slots. Use an indo-rig in the deeper pools. No numbers but really healthy trout netted. Best fish during the PMD hatch was a taped 21" Brown that ate a #16 PMD emerger and two Rainbows taped at 20"; one ate a dryfly #12 "Flav" (Little Western Green Drake) and the other a # 14 Zub-Bug on a dry/dropper set-up."
