A float is going to be out of the question for sure. Looks like my time will be in two sets. 9-12 and 1-4. After that will be tying flies in the hotel room and trying to keep my wife focused on passing this big test. More than likely I'll just try wading around at the Manson Pike Trailhead and avoid the crowds at Nice's Mill.
Can anybody offer some good patterns for stockers? All of my fly fishing has been for warm water species so I'm trying to happen into my first trout on the fly. Even if it is a stocker.
