Fly patterns for steelies on the Rocky

Discussion in 'Steelhead Talk' started by starcraft36, Mar 14, 2005.

  1. Anyone have any advice what type of flies are workin or should be workin on the Rocky for steelhead about this time? Im gonna try it Wednesday. Any other advice is welcome too. Thanks.

  2. i do alot of flyfishing for steelies, but i don't fish the rocky(at least not yet) but i always like streamers or flashy variations of the spring wigggler this time of the year, it seems a combo of flah with a bugggy type body seems to work, like a flashy scud or even a framus tied this crystal flash.. hope this helps.. good luck

  3. I like large flashy streamers along with blue egg pattern's with some flash added. If the sun is warming the water I also use something large and black resembling a stone fly. If the water is very clear I'll try nymph patterns tied with flashback. :) Then you have the wonderful day when they all work! :D
