Keep at it!
As long as you caught some fish, and had some fun, don't worry. You will catch on after a few trips. Try to ask other anglers what they are having success on, and spend more time observing other anglers - where they fish, what they are using, technique, etc.

Yep know it, deeper and slower is the hint. Also use an egg fly, such as the oregon cheese color.

Don't give up also !

Also be careful it can be dangerous there at times with some of the local characters that fish it. I'm serious about this.

PM Out
