  • I am heading to the east side of the central Washington Cascades to do a little trout fishing next week. Anyone have suggestion

    I am heading to the east side of the central Washington Cascades to do a little trout fishing next week. Anyone have suggestions for good fly patterns to use over there this time of year? Thanks~

    Don't know about over there, but was around some high mountain lakes and streams last weekend in North Central Idaho, and the trout were eating grasshoppers...we didn't have any poles(archery hunting), but were having fun tossing hoppers out onto the water to watch the fish strike....you might try a grass hopper pattern.....

        I'm on the west side of the southern Washington Cascades, but we have a ton of grasshoppers and dragonflies right now, and I'll bet the trout are loving them.

          Thanks fellas... I have a lot of various hopper patterns in the fly caddy... I was thinking of trying some black gnats, and nymph patterns as well. If I catch anything worth sharing I will post a pic or two.
          Regards~

              I would definitely recommend some sofa pillows in yellow and orange, maybe some rubberleg Kaufmann stimis in the same. I had some really good success in that same area a few years back. Just curious, what river(s)?

                We are headed to the Naches, American and Bumping rivers...Bumping Lake as well. Never been there before. I was on fires out of Naches a few miles, but not up the rivers...thanks for the advice, I will add some of the patterns to my supplies~ Regards
