Riggs Flat Lake This Spring

I'm planning a day trip to Riggs Flat in May ('13) to do a little float tubing and am curious if anyone has a killer pattern that's worked on holdover browns for them in the past (assuming there are some holdover browns in the lake after a fairly cold winter down here). I'm a catch-and-release guy so any secret patterns you share will not result in fish kill. I've been pretty successful with a dark wooly worm and a trailing bead-head hares ear or peacock lady in Reservation Lake and Horshoe Cienega Lake on the reservation so I thought I'd start with something like that. Also, a few years ago, I fished the beautiful Ash Canyon stream in the Pinalenos beginning at the old mill site (FT 303) and caught some small Apaches. Just a gorgeous little spot. I understand the stream is now closed to all fishing because it is serving as a Gila trout nursery. Are there any plans to open it up to catch-and release in the future? In the meantime, I'm considering Grant Creek. How far do I have to hike down FT 305 from "the top" (Swift Trail) before Grant Creek becomes fishable? Any other streams that drain the Pinalenos that are accessable and you guys might recommend?
