Getting away from the major access points does help. I was on the Caney last week and instead of fishing the area we normally do, we waded at least a half a mile from the access point. The fishing improved a lot but it was still because we had the right flies. The fish would only touch one pattern and it isn't what most people are throwing out there...

I'll second what Grumpy said. I watched someone "battle" a solid 14 inch rainbow last weekend for probably 5 minutes. That fish was a goner I'm sure...
