For some, winter fly fishing within the Pacific Northwest revolves around one species wintertime steelhead.
even though chasing fish that is chrome-bright bloated seaside streams can be quite a challenging and fulfilling experience, most folks overl k some of the amazing trout fishing we see through the winter time, on streams like the Yakima, Spokane, and Deschutes. Here are a few of our patterns that are favorite chasing wintertime trout into the Northwest.
1. Brassie (Red; sizes 16-22) exactly like elsewhere in the western, midges compensate a large section of a troutвЂ™s diet right here in Sasquatch Country. And there is no better midge-larva replica when compared to a red Brassie. This one is rivaled only by the Zebra Midge in its simplicity some red wire, a little peacock, and youвЂ™re done. We mainly trail a Brassie below a bigger attractor pattern, like a stonefly nymph or San Juan Worm, although it are fished efficiently in the area movie within a midge emergence.
2. Zebra Midge (Red, black colored, olive and white; sizes 18-22) this really is another midge-larva that is great, and is particularly a breeze to tie. Throughout the winter, we fish the Zebra Midge into the same role as the Brassie, and connect it in a variety of colors. If you tie your own personal, tie a couple of with tungsten bead heads to fast get down.
3. PatвЂ™s Rubberlegs Stonefly (Black/brown, olive/black, olive/brown; sizes 8-12) When fishing a nymph that is two-fly under an indicator, 9 times out of 10 our lead fly is really a PatвЂ™s Rubberlegs.
