View Full Version : spring break

02-24-2007, 11:13 AM
I just made reservations for the townsend area for spring break. We will be there the second week in March. I know a lot depends on the temperature, but in a general since, what would be some fly patterns that I would need to pick up at LRO for that time of year and for that general area. I usually fish around metcalf bottoms and some times over in elkmont. Hope to be able to get in some dry fly action....

Here's what I'll be fishing. You're sure to get a variety of personal favorites.

Sizes - #12 to 16(for me anyway) might even go 18 0r 20?

Quill Gordons
Blue Quill
Parachute Adams

(I like Dry Fly action and only use these if nothing else works)
Black Stonefly Nymph
Hares Ear Nymph
Pheasant Tail Nymph
Prince Nymph
Copper Johns with or w/out legs

Little River will fix you up on your way in.. Enjoy.. Mark
