My dad and I are putting in at dawn Sunday morning and making that section of the float for about our 3rd time. I don't remember much of the water, I thought it was all deep like the section a few hundred yards from the newly built stairs below the dam, but my dad told me it gets shallow, too. What should I be fishing mainly, a midge under an EHC or a wooly bugger? I tied on a tapered leader and LOVED it until I started getting knots in it. I took that off, put on a few feet of tippet, then an EHC, another foot or so and then a midge. It casted alright, awkwardly, but it worked. What should I do about that? Be more careful with the tapered, or go as is?
