So how'd the Jam go?? I was able to make it up Saturday afternoon and hit a couple spots on Elk. Didn't recognize anyone, but none of the few board members I've met said they were going so who knows maybe I did run into a few of you guys without knowing it.

As for the fishing, it was ok for the time I was there. Landed 3, and they were all out of the "in-between" water. Didn't need to fish shoulder to shoulder in the popular pools. Just found fishy looking runs and caught a couple fish lol. Conditions seemed just about perfect.

LetortAngler, just curious, how big were the browns on Crooked?

Not much snow up there.
Eastside is back to low and clear.
Elk is still fishing good with flow and a little color, but is coming down and clearing.

That really depends on the pattern. I use Daiichi 1130. #14 for my single eggs (I really don't ever make big Glo-Bug patterns) and #12 for my sucker spawn patterns.

14 for scrambled eggs and 16 for blood dots most of the time. If water is up I have some chartreuse and pink eggs in 12

They need to mimic the eggs in the stream. They are not that big.

Awesome, thank you for your time! I am just learning the ways.

Do you typically use a veil on the egg pattern. I was going to hook a salmon egg on a hook and tie a veil over it... Thoughts?

I use glo bug yarn the big kind, split it in half than in three. So it's about 1/6 of original strand, that's what I found makes a good realistic pattern, and that's what your looking for, I use light roe as the blood dot. It's my go to in clear conditions. As far as putting the egg on and tying it, I wouldn't. Use trout beads or something like that if your not too comfortable tying eggs.

That should work. I have a few ties that are a small orange bead with a pink or cream veil tied over it. It looks like a fertilized egg.

Not the greatest picture but here is an example:

I've used #18 articulated stoneflys for steel.

One brown was 11" and the other about 16".

Water is cold (<40F). Leave the streamers at home. Make your presentation count and put it right in their feeding 'zone'.
