I'm headed below PK on Monday and I want to catch my first Trout on the fly. What type of fly should I use, top and bottom? I will be throwing a 3wt.

Thanks,
Bryan

make sure to fish it cold. EEEaarly morn is prime. In my experience with PK trout, if you're fishing >55*F [air] your day's over. The best day to go is when you have to chip ice off your windshield. 65-75% of all the fish I've caught at PK dam were before 9:00a

Plus people tend to wake up after 8

I have had luck with a PMD parachute and a black midge dropper. Black and olive are my go to colors. I have also used Elk Hair Caddis flies with a black dubbed body.

I have been there when a PMD and Black Zebra Midge Hatch are happening. That was a good day. It was all done by 8:30 AM.

Don't forget late in the day when the sun goes off the water.

Edit Reason: forgot about Elk Hair Caddis flies

I was there Xmas eve morning. Pretty slow, one trout by the hatchery creek. Had a couple of strikes that I missed. I attribute that to getting to the parking area late. The sun was up when I got there, but not on the water yet. I had the place to myself until about 10 AM. I also saw GW when I was there - nice guy.

I went Wednesday and did pretty good. 13 rainbows, 4 small white bass, and 2 decent bluegills. Fly of choice was a wooly booger thrown on my 3wt TFO. All catch and release.

Size 12 to 8, olive or black wooly. I usually have the best luck with olive in those sizes.

I guess there is a reason that the fly is a classic - it works. I always catch a few and then switch flies to something different. You never know.... might work.
