Re: fishing after a rain
I usually do a little better when the water is a little higher than normal. That is usually when I seek out eddies beside big boulders and underwater structure that break up the current. I've had more break offs during high water than normal flows. I think the browns feed better on high flows, too. Use some flies that'll get down fast and fish all of the water column. Don't forsake the streamers either. I've had most of my luck using traditional bucktails and wiggle minnows when streamer fishing. A good high water nymph would be a prince. Don't be afraid to go big.
