Crowded! Don't go out there and drive straight to your favorite "honey hole". Look for the open gates and talk to the people that are already out there. It's already happening, the fish are getting wise to hopper patterns so presentation and timing can be critical, don't be afraid to throw double hoppers and try drowning the bottom one. With the increase of hoppers even the big fish are starting to look up so it's not just the Hoppers but also Caddis and PMD's for dry fly action. The bigger fish and migratory planters are scattering so don't just sit on the deeper holes.
