It’s that wonderful time of year again and fall fishing is picking up everywhere. Here are ten consistent “fall producers” you need in your fly box to fish our local waters.
Chubby Chernobyl: Short winged stones, hoppers and October Caddis are represented by a variety of chubby styles. It’s also a great “hopper dropper” pattern.
Purple Parachute Rooster: Mahogany Duns, Beatis, “lesser drakes” are imitated by this versatile parachute pattern. This fly has been one of our favorite all around patterns.
Hippy Stomper: Superb all around attractor fly pattern. Fish this fly during the day when you do not see any activity.
Parachute Caddis: This pattern imitates a variety of caddis species present in the fall. Hi Vis and high floating pattern fishes great all fall.
Heavy Hackle Moose Tail Parachute Adams: Big water no problem, this version of the Parachute Adams floats and floats. It will even float with a smaller bead head nymph under it which serves as an outstanding searching method. Fall Mayflies like Grey Drakes are well imitated by the HH Para Adams.
Hi Vis Parachute Adams #16-18: Late in the evening and on some of those “grey days” when the blue winged olives are hatching in the fall the Hi Vis Para Adams is a great pattern.
Kingrey’s Better Foam Caddis: We are super close to October Caddis time and the Better Foam has been a favorite of many for years. Slap in on the surface and watch them come!
Brillon’s Lucent Jig: We have been super impressed with this fly all year. As we get towards lower light, spawning salmon and a bit more water look for these to really ramp up in the brighter options.
Possie Bugger Jig: All time favorite Possie Bugger with Jig style hook is simply one of our best nymphs. Day in day out on our local waters you can’t beat this nymph pattern.
Jigged CDC Pheasant Tail: This slender fly with quick decent has been great using Czech Nymphing tactics as well as under a Chubby.
Bead Head October Caddis: These large caddis pupae will be available to the fish throughout the fall.
Have fun on the water this Fall
