One thing that Rob didn't mention, probably because his clients would not agree to, is to get up extremely early and start fishing in still waters before light. Starting out early is very important, especially during hot summer months. One bit of advice from Denny Rickards that I religiously follow is, "Don't worry about getting to your body of trout water too early- the fish will be there." Having fly fished multiple times yearly in Idaho, Nevada, and Utah since the early 70's in high desert still waters, this has proven true in the majority of waters fished. Fortunately, I have the two same buddies for 40 plus years who enjoy the same routine. We launch our pontoons in the dark and usually can find fish in water a foot or less deep cornering minnows, chasing crayfish, or picking of damsel nymphs or snails from shallow weed beds. Using intermediate lines, this is exciting fishing, as one can witness vicious strikes. By the time the sun hits the water and anglers are on the water, the bite has slowed down or over, and fish have move to deeper water where number 2,3 4, or even 6 lines are required. Get in the water early, you can take a nap later.
