  1. Yes as far as I know at this point without wading the entire thing to date. The riffles were just over the top of my ankles in depth. The main current flows were the right and left side with the top of the center being noticeably slower. If you can imagine it think of the current flows as a set of curved horns on each side laying forward downstream with the right side being longer and more pronounced. The current on the right was at least a half faster than the left side. I'm assuming because of the structure of the far right side shooting water down that side. I fished the center carefully but never had a take. Were there fish in the center...undoubtedly but neither dry nor wet had any takers there. A wiggle cast to the far right side with some additional quick rod pop and feeds of line got a dead drift down to the fish who were holding near the log stick up on the right. I tried high floating dry's over the edge of the riffles into the fish I knew were there but only had 2 takers out of 20+ attempts and both small fish. 12 -13 of those attempts the flies got hung-up before I got to the edge on the hydrilla/grass growing from in-between the rocks. It's still a new place to me so I'll learn it better in the future...I'm so tempted to snorkel this place and see it for myself underwater!!!
  2. I used my go to locator fly and caught 1 fish per side(left & right of the pool), just after the ripple, on this: 6 other fish, including the big fish of the day, on a size 16 Gold Bead Nymph with Crystal Flash Tail. 3ft below strike indicator. Casting towards the far right side and before the brown leaf tree on the right and allowed to dead drift. Every fish that took the Nymph was just before or right beside the log stick up on the right side.
  3. I thought it would be interesting to see how other fishermen would approach this. Here is the spot I recently fished. What would you use according to what you see??? Only one hint: "Right after the ripples it drops off into 3-4ft in depth." Left Side: Center: Right Side: Far Right side: Aerial Photo(red "X" photo's taken from)
