All the Mtn streams fish best with a dry/dropper set up.Hoppers shuold be present about any time. A Schroeders Hopper or Raineys Grand can be really effective with a small BH Pheasant Tail, black Zebra, Hare's ear or Prince hanging below.
Weather on the Mtn looks to be nearly ideal for the next week. With little or no moisture in the forecast conditions should remain excellent for the next week to ten days.
