When would be the best time to go? I've canoed about 30 miles of it in august, and I loved it. I don't know exactly what I like about it so much, maybe the fact that I saw huge trout in crystal clear water with no fishing rod *curses*. So I have some questions.

1) When is the best time of the year to go?(I'm a junior in high school, so hopefully I can get there on a vacation in april or late june or something...)
2) what kind of flies should I use?
3) any particular parts of the river that are more productive than others(I plan on doing about a week canoe trip down all 47 miles of it)
4) Anything else you'd like to share that would make the trip easier...

Thanks in advance to anyone who even aknowledges the post, haha.
