beadhead pheasant tails, copper john, prince, crystal buggers work well. size 14-16 on nymphs size 10-6 on buggers with 10 and 8 being better choices.

sucker spawn and single eggs always produce. Tie up a few different color variations.

stone fly patterns produced for me as well. Went with large heavy stones, tied with hares mask and squirrel dubbing. PM me if you want any recipes.

2x heavy is fine. I weight all of my steelhead flies as well.

For your nymphs do you keep them natural looking or bright and flashy?


I fish mainly a size 14 BHPT, I tie in some Krystal flash on the wing case and tail. Never bothered with legs, doesn't seem to matter. Weight is the key as I said previously.

early in the season stick with streamers and nymphs. switch to eggs when it starts to get cold. that's what i have success with

that all depends on water clarity, if its clear use more natural stuff
it also doesn't hurt to experiment
