Productive flies for the White and North Fork Rivers
Scuds and Sowbugs are the most common staples of our local trout.
Scuds (freshwater shrimp) in sizes #14 – #20
Sowbugs, also known as Cressbugs in sizes #14 – #20
These midges is size #18 – #24 will produce year round. Black, red, brown and olive are the top colors.
We have several different colored caddis, the sizes range from #14 to #20. This hatch normally begins in March and goes until sometime in May.
A great combination rig is an #14 – #18 elk hair caddis on the surface,followed by an emerger then a caddis nymph. Make sure you have that nymph very close to the bottom if the activity up top is not steady.
