In general, fishing upstream is definitely the way to go. But if I can't get anything to come to the surface, I start stripping mayfly and caddis imitations across the water to see if I can get the fish to react to movement. This is most easily done from upstream. I try to be extra sneaky, even ninja sneaky, and cast across and downstream, letting the fly take a natural drift into the current and then swing across. I then strip the fly in short bursts, doing my best to make it look like an adult fly laying eggs. This is usually a last resort, but it has worked very well for me at times in the Park, especially on Abrams.

Life is hard. But it's a lot harder if you're stupid.
