I've seen (and missed) fish that were taking them on penns before. They'll take them when they fall on the LL.

so are the current "paraleps" i'm seeing on the LL a factor? I'm talkin' dries/spinners. the times i've seen them they were thick and i thought they were tricos but they never fell...or do they fall later in the day. i was out from 6am to 10:30 and dint see one fall to the water.

thanks
Jeff


Jeff, I was there today too around that same time. I must have walk right by you. I saw a couple of guys upstream from Trico run and a NY license in the lot at the fly shop. How did you do? I saw 3 fish and one of them was rising but he didn't like any of the flies I offered him.

I'm no expert on paraleps or tricos but Dave Rothrock ties paralep duns. How, when or where he fishes them I ain't got a clue.

I fish what I call paralep nymphs

size 18-22 straight hook (usually a #20)
grey thread
short grey or dun tail (very sparse)
peacock quill abdomen
grey thorax (anything will do muskrat, adams superfine etc)
grey goose quill wing case.







Worked well last year all summer long haven't been out much this year. But I will give it a try this saturday and sunday morning.

I thought tricos fall mid-day. On the Gunpowder they fall by 11:00 or so, and turn off like a light switch...or maybe that's when they hatch...only fished them once last year.

I think their fall has more to do with the air temps than the time of day. I've been done fishing the spinner fall by 10:00am on really hot days. I've also been fishing it until early afternoon on cooler ones.

I'm not sure who thought up that trico cluster pattern, but it had to be ten years when I was fishing the LL in the Heritage section when I struck up a conversation with a fellow FFer, and he handed me a fly that looked almost exactly like that. I thanked him and put it in my fly box (it's still there by the way). I thought it was some kind of a SJ worm cluster or something and laughed it off. I'm going to give it a try the next time I fish a trike hatch.

when you see the white shucks on the water they have moulted in the air and the spinners will fall very shortly , as someone mentioned it is air temps. the hotter it is the quicker they mate and fall , usually emerge between 52-55 degrees , early morning in early season and late morning late season ..

I had a blast today on the LL with the trico cluster/traffic jam fly. Nice fish on first cast ever with that fly. That's a winner. Another fish came a few minutes later. Both inhaled the fly, so they apparently like it. However, there was not a lot of Tricos on the water when they took it. Later, when there was tons of spent tricos on the water I could only get the fish to look at it. They also liked to chase it when I was picking up my line to cast but never smashed it.

Gochs . You can get them from the little lehigh fly shop. However once you start tying, they are very easy pattern (as tiny dries go anyway).

trowpa, I understand that, but i'm from a bit further west. i should have said, is Al's trico pattern so well known that Allen from Spruce Creek Outfitters would know what it is? thus, saving my embarassment when he gives me that look like im some kind of wierdo. lol

Gochs...

You can buy them online. Also doesn't hurt to ask your local shop to start carrying them. The recipe is also on the llfs site
