The largest trout in each pool gets on the "primary" feeding station in each pool to take advantage of the great numbers of sulphur mayflies which are hatching now. This is either the lip of the pool or the corner of the pool. Fishing a Shenk's Sulphur Dry size 18 or a Murray's Sulphur Dry size 18 at this time of the year is very effective.
