Juro is right on as usual. on the niagara i use t-14 in about a 12' hunk with four feet of 0x leader and a brass 1.5" tube. this gets down in about 10-14-ft, not on the bottom but where the fish can see it. the other method is a 15; mono leader and a 2" copper tube. this is not much fun to cast but works well in the very clear water where the tip is spooking fish. the thing to keepin mind is slow and deep, this should be your mantra as you fish each run. cast straight across and grease line or dead drift the fly to about the 45 deg mark make a big upstream mend and let the fly work slow and deep as possible across to your side let it hang for a few seconds and start over. keep working on them and you will find some willing fish, just try to make it as easy as possible for them to get the fly.
