thanks--- wish there was more activity on top???/ whats with the LL this year? Maybe all the rain had an effect on the hatches but the Trico action was pretty much non-existent when I was there this year & the olives have been sparse. I managed one that I saw feeding on top visably in the Hertitage section a few weeks back and some opportunistic fish on terrestrials, but has not been like years past ...... what gives?

The tricos fished fine on the LL as far as I could tell. I only hit conditions right one day, but over 20 fish were found rising, and about half that many hooked.

tricos seemed pretty darn good and dependable upstream of the heritage section this year....didn't see olives in the spring but saw some this fall...not real heavy...

I fished the LL for tricos pretty often this year, the hatch was there, but it was tough finding fish rising to them. I fished primarliy above the hertitage section, not sure if that had anything to do with it.

I found the exact same thing on the LL, bugs but few fish rising. I only fished it a few times this past summer though.

I'll say you boys are spot on. Great clouds few fish rising. Gotta carry those paraleps and trico nymphs for those days. Of course Rod says both are unimportant but I know a wise man that has taught me otherwise he goes by Old Lefty

Just a hunch but are you the Quakertown boy who stole your wifes hard as nails to use on that pattern you caught that fish with?

Right on the mark :) Were you in Mainstream when I was talking to Andy??? And yes, my wife is still wondering where it went!

What's the most productive size Scud on the LL? I've seen many in the 18 range under rocks, but I also seem to do well with a little larger sz 16? Anyone fish or tie them as small as 20-22?

I tie scuds from size 14-20. Most often use 16-18. This fly is a staple for me in all LS spring creeks.

I use primarliy size 18. I also use that size when fishing with a PT. Earlier in the season I like to use #14 and #16 in both patterns. Ive heard the later in the season the smaller the fly you should use.

great info guys --- what about colors? I know scud take on the color of the surroundings, but I generally use/tie tan, but have had the occasional luck with a grey flashback varient
