Orvis Phoenix 's Tip of the Week
Dry-droppers, caddis, stimulators, hoppers and beetles. You really cant go wrong with a small black stonefly like a prince nymph or even a pheasant tail this time of year. Stripping sculpzillas and wooly buggers has been prodcing fish. Dont forget to keep some BWOs in your box for when that hatch hits! Make sure you are casting towards the bank, those brown will hold in slack water waiting to ambush.

Good time to be fishing right now! get up there before the swimmers start!
Techniques & Tips as of 5/11/22
Indicator and double fly rigs deep have been working best. Try fishing streamers through slack water and hitting undercut banks. The higher flows at oak creek can be a great time for targeting those bigger brown trout.
