This is of no help to you but my buddy who can hardly shoot a fly 15ft didn't catch a thing the last time he went. He was targeting bass with buggers and sum topwater terrestrial/popper patterns. Most fish I catch are usually on shorter casts but for some reason this kid never seems to catch JACK.

 

He did tell me that he hooked into some nice lookin brookies on the saginaw river/stream.. He mainly uses buggers so I'm going to assume thats what he was hookin them with. But if I were you I'd totally fish the saginaw.

 

Wish I could help you more, sorry buddy But good luck!
