hi

try a fly with a CDC wing and a black hackle, leave it in the water do not retreive. brown and rainbow trouts go for it. use a floating fly line and 5lb leader with a length of about 10 foot.

A think every 1 has a different dry flie choice all work very well when used correctly but I think you will need to match the hatch and also you're chances improve as it gets darker when the sun goes down I have found that when you have found the flie they are taking it can be good sport because you get alot of misses and slot of fish muddler minnows work well for me

Its pivotal to get the fly "in" the surface film rather than sitting "on" the water, as mentioned, cdc winged flies do this well. Try shuttlecock buzzers.

Try an "F" Fly.

Cul-de-canard (feather from the ducks preen gland) wrapped around the hook and a tuft of CDC tied in at the head of the fly.

The preen gland has waterproofed those feathers and the fly sits at angle just below the surface, meanwhile the tuft is your sight indicator.

Toss it out and leave it.
