    Default campbell creek

    you might find a few holding fish that will take a fly, but it gets a lot of flip and rip folks pressuring them - as a result the fish tend to be shy and spooky. my $.02

    Default Happy fish

    WyoAK is spot on. You need to find "happy" holding fish to get them to cooperate. Keep moving until you do. Just my opinion

    early morning, go smaller, and light line, you'll still pikc up fish!

    I'd add a fuschia bunny fly is a must for silvers...and orange and fuschia popsicile/marabou flies for the slower places or pools with holding fish where there is little current.
