View Full Version : Egg patterns...

Anybody fish egg patterns in the smokies? Saw an Owl Jones' video on his blog and he was catching stockers in the nantahala on egg patterns. Just curious if smokies trout can be caught with them...

Mundele, I do fish egg paterns in the park. I fish them in the riffles below reds.[well below reds]. You'll be amazed @ the fish you'll catch. Go to 3 or 4x you might be surprised. I fish a larger nymph and trail the egg.High stick this and you'll do fine. You can use an indicator,but the weight will drag it under pretty often. Also of note it might be a little early for this technique but worth a try. I usually don't fish an egg until Nov. when browns are in the middle of the spawn.
