I used a #22 Mercury RS2 dropped behind a #20 chartruese vinyl midge, I only witnessed a couple of riseing trout sipping on Trico spinners, the reason for this, I beleive is the spinners that were in my area were blown well down stream when the wind piced up around 11:30. The fishing really got tough when the wind picked up in the early afternoon, before that it was fishing excellent. They were taking both flies with a good dead drift, I was only able to sight nymph two fish. The majority of the fish I caught were feeding deep in the tailouts and in the deep seams.

Good fishing! I'm going to give the RS2 a try soon on one of my local small streams. They're not quite so demanding of finesse as a tailwater... so I'll probably be fishing it under a size 16 Royal Wulff.
