Hatches are matched from Westfly's database of "standard" fly patterns.


Pupa

Size 10-22 Chans Chironomid Pupa, Zebra Midge. Black, gray, olive, red, creams, browns

► When trout are midging, a Sprout Midge or Griffiths Gnat can work well, but a pupa pattern is always a good choice.

► Trout can be very picky about size and color of the pupa. You may need to swap flies several times to find the right combination.

Adult

Size 6-16 Scud. Olive, tan, olive-pink, olive-orange

► Scud imitations are always a good winter choice here, especially when they have an orange or pink tint on the back. Dead drift your size 12-16 patterns near the bottom, or slowly retrieve them in slow water.

► Scuds are light-shy, so cloudy days are a good time to try scud patterns.

General


► Be sure to check the river levels in case of sudden spikes due to storms.
