    Most of the reports that I've heard have indicated it's slow. However, I've heard of two different guys fishing 20-25' deep w/ chironomids who have done very well. There was a guy who posted on a chironomid technique thread recently who described a pretty cool system for fishing that deep using a full sink line. It's worth a look IF you have a full sink line.

    I have heard that it is pretty slow over there, but at least it doesn't seem to get as much pressure as the last couple of years (so I have heard). You could probably have a lot of water for yourself.

    It's not slow... they just don't know how to fish it.

    Backyard,
    Are you willing to share any secrets on how to fish Dry Falls? I've done real well there at times with chironomids, but have had little luck with anything else. I used to have pretty good luck on a midge emerger pattern on the surface as well, but the last couple of years it hasn't produced. I understand if you don't want to share; I'm just always "fishing" for new ways to get better at this sport.
