Perhaps more fair to say that folks prefer dries on the east slopes during the summer, versus subsurface not being productive. Who on earth would want to fish nymphs during a rise??! (For reference, I am an admitted dry fly addict these days, so it pained me on the cool weekend past to fish nymphs and streamers all day)

In early July caddis should be productive; perhaps a good idea to have some pmd's and stimulators too. Check out hatch charts for some general ideas... there's lots of them online, like this one here: Beginning of July can be pretty variable depending on ambient temps and when the runoff has hit, so probably a good idea to check out reports closer to the date. For example, Country Pleasures and Crowsnest Angler both have decent reports on their websites that are updated frequently that time of year.
