I had some success out in CO over the summer on a warm reservoir with some thin water where I could sight them tailin by huckin a size 4 or 6 kaufmans stone in front of them and retrieving with long, slow strips so as to keep the fly right off the bottom. They seemed to take it just about every time if I put it across their face without lining them on the presentation or stirring the water in some other way. also, I had a lot more luck with a strip set once I felt the bump as opposed to raising my rod to set. anyone know of any water around Ktown where some of these tails might be seen?
