Lower Mountain Fork River: The fish have been very active lately near the surface. While a dry fly will sometimes work, an emerger would be a better choice. You can also twitch your dry fly to break the surface tension of the water and fish it just under the surface. Best to choose a small fly, about a size 18 or much smaller is even better. Lots of fish have been caught on size 22-26 lately. Wooly buggers can be a lot larger and still work fine since they are not an insect imitation, (more of a minnow or crawfish).
