A lot of these guys will tell you to go super small as you can see. But, I have had tons of success there with a very basic fly called the candy cane in sz 18. It's got a big white tungsten beadhead, a white body and red wire. Very simple yet extremely effective. I usually to do better with something around sz 18 than super small. I usually save the super small stuff for winter. I'll use it as a dropper in part of my hopper dropper setup. Still plenty of hoppers where I'm at so if it's warm, should be a lot there too. You should always have a variety of flies but definitely try the candy cane. I tie it with a relatively fat body and the fish love it. It's one of those flies that can pretty much be used anywhere with decent success. I've tried it all over and done well. My first spinney trout was on the sz18 candy cane. And my first blue river brown.Going to 11 mile canyon this weekend. Wondering what people have been using with success this time of year. Thanks in advance for the tips!
Also, tricos and basic dries like Adams and caddis in sz 18 or so. There's a lot of stuff that will work. Bring streamers too.Going to 11 mile canyon this weekend. Wondering what people have been using with success this time of year. Thanks in advance for the tips!
