Default Dry Fly verus nymph

I have read several posting stating that the water levels are down and that the majority of the fish are being caught on the dropper fly which has usually been a nymph instead of the dry fly.
One post was describing that once he switched over from a dry to a nymph the action took off and and "you know what that means"
I do not know what this means, are we entering a transistion from dry to nymph because of water levels or are the fish biting the nymphs more because they do not see you as easily.
I am planning on fishing next week while I'm on vacation and would really like to understand if the dry fly versus nymph is water level related or something else.
