Fallfish are the only fish that bother me with their slime. I usually try not to touch them when I remove the fly because I gotta drive home when I'm done fishing and I don't want the steering wheel smelling like fallfish. The smell does get to me. plus they crap on you a lot but the big ones in heavy current do fight well so that almost makes up for it.

I have a 5 wt rod so I think a 20"+ sucker would be a challenge by size alone if not by making runs like the one in one of those videos.

So more like a DQ hot dog? Cuz you're at a place with something better than hot dogs but you get a hot dog and it isn't that great but you'll take it. LOL does this make any sense?

Absolutely...

And looked at on a sliding scale that compares value with a lot of what is said around here, it comes very close to qualifying as wisdom...:)

I am too young to be wise...

I gotta be honest I just picked something and then made up an explanation afterwards...four years of top-level English classes will help you do that lol. I can find a symbolic meaning or analogy in anything even a DQ hotdog

I've never targeted them, so this is just a guess, but what about a san juan worm or leech? When I see them schooled up and hanging midstream they're not usually feeding, but sometimes a stray trout is hanging out with them, I'm guessing feeding on what they kick up. You could probably coax a hit by getting a worm or leech down in the mud and twitching it to create a small puff. Might trigger a strike.

Maybe a bugger would work i don't have any worms or leeches, that's a good idea wildfish

Use bright pink or red san jaun worms. I have caught tons of suckers in Cedar Creek (lehigh county) on them. They love worms.

I find that if I'm fishing in an area with a good population of suckers I periodically catch them on pretty much any nymph (GRHE, isonychias, prince, small stonefly nymphs etc) I'm fishing as long as I'm getting a GOOD drift. My own experience with suckers is that they are a lot more sensative to any unnatural fly movement than stocked trout are. I actually use it as a barometer of sorts for certain holes I like to fish. If I catch a sucker once in a while, I know I've got my weight and drift spot on. Also, they fight great. Heres a pic of an Allegheny River Sucker I got on a prince nymph.

Fish trout flies slow and along the bottom. Sucker spawn, nymphs and worm patterns will all take them. If I'm fishing a pool with both species, suckers almost always spook before the trout.
