The nymph fishing is, of course, really good.  Get your flies down to the right depth and hang on.  Work the foam lines and you'll be rewarded.  Nymphs to have are FB anything, with pink in it, Ray Charles, Pink Scuds, Pink Amex, Rainbow Warriors, PT's and Zebra Midges.  The dry fly thing hasn't happened just yet, especially with the Baetis.  It will as soon as the water temps get up past 40-42.  It will happen soon enough.  There are some Skwala's out and fish eating them below Craig, but nothing too crazy.  The best eat you'll have all spring is on the big Skwala's.  It's definitely worth a try...
