During November, blue-winged olives (size 18-20) and midges (size 20-22) are the main show. Stock up on Baetis Cripples, CDC Baetis, Sparkle Duns, and similar patterns. Toss in some Baetis nymph imitations such as Pheasant Tails and sparse Hares Ears; sizes 18-20 should do it.

When you're not fishing those patterns, tie on some Blood Midges or Brassies. You should also carry a few Griffiths Gnats or Sprout Midges.

Size 16 Scuds (olive-gray, pink, orange) are another pattern to put in your box. Use a long leader--14-16 feet tapered to 5X fluorocarbon, skip the indicator. Present the scud on a dead drift or with a slow retrieve.

A few mahogany duns might still be hatching early in the month.

If all else fails, try a sparse, black leech. White Bunny Leeches can also be productive, but only if no one else is using them.

Don't expect solitude. Weekdays will be less busy than weekends.
