Top Tailwater Flies
I have found the following to be effective --

1. Tim's Trout Candy (Tim Page's own design fly) beneath a San Juan worm with strike indicator above the SJ worm.

2. My own design small woolly buggers. I have been tying my own black and green WB on size 10 - 14 hooks with gold glass bead heads and three different colors of Sulky Holoshimmer (from Joanns) for the tail. They have been work extremely well this winter on the stocked trout. (I caught 20 RBs in two hours on Friday, for example.)

What exactly is a thread midge?
A thread midge is just a midge hook wrapped with thread... Or a zebra midge without the wire.
