Catching fish that you see can really be tough. My guess is that if you are able to catch one from that pool then the other fish will spook and that will be that. Your spot sounds perfect for a flyrod but if that's not your thing then try really small lures in natural colors. Stream fish feed a great deal on insects and very small minnows so try and match the hatch. Ultralite rod and reel w/4-6lb. test. Try beetle spins, marabou jigs and 2" grubs. Try lures in the 1/32oz catagory. Pitch a small marabou jig in the pool and just let it sit for a couple of minutes. Sometimes they can't stand it being there and will bite it.

You might also wait until the rains muddy up the stream a little, then try. GOOD LUCK
