RE:Droppers with Nymphs


I have seen the rare steelheader fishing the indicator/nymph setup for winter fish but never the two fly setup that is used so effectively for trout on the Deschutes. One thing to note is that the weighted nymph method is coming under scrutiny in southern Oregon. As I understand it, there is some evidence that it a) too effective and b) increases accidental mortality. Jeff knows a lot more about this than I do so maybe he will chime in.
