Will be fishing the LL on Saturday anyone have suggestions on what flies to use? Never fished it in the spring. Then on Sunday will be fishing Bushkill for trout in the morning early afternoon before heading down to where the Lehigh River goes under 33 for pickerel. Anyone have suggestions for either?

You need four flies:
A size 14 Adams, and one in size 16.
You also need a size 14 hare's ear, and one in size 16.

With those four flies in your possession, you will never need to ask "what flies work" anywhere in the world.

Have a nice day.

I'd recommend some decent sized streamers for the Pickeral...Buggers are fine, just get some bigger ones. If you're exclusively targeting Pickeral you may want to consider a short wire "bite tippet" running to the fly. Unless you hook them perfectly with regular tippet they will often find a way to run the line against their teeth and cut you off.
