As the number of big bugs leaves the Maupin area, those who want to fish large adult stone fly dries better move further toward Warmspring. The trout from Maupin down stream are starting to feed more and more on Caddis, Yellow Sallies, and Mayflies depending on the day. Dropper have been effective in heavier water. Olive caddis pupas and small prince style nymphs about 2 feet below your dry are doing best. Green Drake nymphs below your adult stone fly dry are the ticket up river.
