Below are 3 flies that have been very good for SM. When you tie the Mallard Flank Minnow, use red thread intead for a little color. Also, if you can get Chartreuse mallrd flank, go for it. They love that color. I fish it across current like Kelly Gallop teaches. The mud bug is great for tossing upstream and dragging/hopping it back. It accounted for my largest river SM ever. The Murdich Minnow will float at first and then be just subsurface. Let me know if you try any of these.
