Thoughts on using dries shortly after a moderate to heavy rain? Water too turbid still?

Dry Flies are often an excellent choice after a rain. From June through August, try #14 Dun Variants (grey bodied mayflies) and also keep an eye out for Blue Winged Olives as they love overcast days a love to hatch after rain.

Like most things.....it depends.

That said, dry fly /emerger fishing is the rule. Dredging is the exception.

Largest trout I ever caught on a dry fly (BWO parachute size 20) was on a smaller stream with heavy canopy fishing during a downpour.

Rain keeps the wings of bugs wet.  Therefore they stay on the water longer.  They eat in the rain and after. 

Rain and humidity. The higher the humidity, the longer it takes for wings to dry enough to take off. Especially mayflies.
