I promise that if you fish by casting upstream instead of down, you'll get twice as many strikes. Whether you're casting small Rapalas, which work very well, spinners (the smallest, unfeathered Mepps are great) or live bait, this is the way to go. Keep your hardware tumbling along, not spinning, just a tad faster than the current, and amazing things will happen if you trail your skirt past a lusty brown or brookie. Be inventive! (You already are, simply by being on the water at this time of year.) Hit the fish from positions they've probably never been approached from before.
