I saw a good report from some friends in Sunriver who were at Hosmer Friday. They reported dangling a Zebra Midge off the back of a small dry fly was effective. The Channel and Lower Lake are going to be the best areas to be fishing. Late season I like a #16-18 Red Ice Cream Cone under a yarn indicator. Why yarn? Yarn is way more sensitive to a soft take than a cork, or Airlock and will twitch or go under on a soft (cold water) take. That is also why many dry flies work so well as an indicator. The problem with the dry as an indicator is it isn’t as easily adjustable and won’t hold up a heavier nymph as well as a yarn (NW Wool or Loon Yarn).
