Question from a Reader of our Blog asked, "What fishing flies have we been using to fish for Trout this Season?" In hopes of answering his question, decided to post an article, Three Suggested Fishing Flies for Rainbow Trout. Hope others find it useful, too. It includes details on how we tie the fishing flies... easy to tie, easy to fish...!

Great information!!

I had asked about flies for stocked trout the other day. The following is noted in the article:


Additionally, rumor has it that the Gold ribbed hares ear nymph is a good imitation of Purina Trout Chow pellets that hatcheries feed Stocker Trout.

Made it to the Blue Saturday; limited out with six Rainbow Trout. Video Clip. Used the Near Deere and Zebra Midge to get a few. As well as a COAF Guadalupana.

Here is a link to the articles section of a partner website our Web Admin has been working on. It pulls in the article about the Three Suggested Fishing Flies for Rainbow Trout with other related articles to other patterns posted in the past. May prove useful to some who would like to tie them as well... StockerTroutFishing.com.

One of the three suggested fishing flies worked today; was able to take a limit of stocker trout using a BH GRHEN. Cold temps today; even had to break ice from the rod guides at one point. Today's Video.

Cool video. I didn't see no birds. Much better place to fish than Northwest Part in Irving. All the birds steal all the trout before we can catch any.

Thanks Moonriver! Went back again... Two of us limited out at Waterloo today. Even better, was able to try a Micro Fishing Rod on Stocker size Trout. Rod worked well... Near Deere was the fishing fly that worked this round.Today's Video.

I've been catching a ton of fish in the guad on the near deer as well. Rust color has been working the best. I was pulling fish out from in between all the bait chunkers under the dam this weekend. I also landed a few nice ones last weekend over 20 inches after they stocked. Wasn't really fair though, they would hit just about anything

Great to hear the Near Deere is working in your area. Was not able to fish for trout today but did get a quick trip to the local pond and catch five Bass. No Bruisers and slower paced fishing but still fun! All went for the Near Deere. Today's Video.

More detail on a variation of the Near Deere Fishing Fly - a productive fishing fly tied on a small jig. This one uses Olive Marabou for the tail and Brown Flash Chenille for the body. Simple pattern that is a consistent producer of Trout as well as other fish in our area! Today's Video.

Decided to fish Plano East Senior High School this evening. Caught two Catfish and three Bluegill fishing a Near Deere under a strike indicator. Fun stuff.... Today's Video.

Fished Beavers Bend State Park in Oklahoma on Saturday. Used a Five Weight Fly Rod/Reel and fished a Tandem Rigged Near Deere and trailing Prince Nymph. Worked several pools and runs along Spillway Creek.

Hooked a couple of Trout but lost them shortly after when they threw the fishing fly. Also, hooked and landed two nice Rainbow Trout - 18" and 15.5" trout that put up a great fight (as well as a great dinner Saturday evening - see Grilled Plank Recipe).

Fish went for the Prince Nymph but suspect a GRHEN would have worked as well as others were hooking up using them! Tied Near Deere and COAF Griffith's Gnats for the trip; skipped the GRHENs. Next time bring GRHENs.

Fun stuff! Saturday's Fishing Action.

Used the Near Deere yesterday at a local pond; had fun catching little Bass and Bluegill/Sunfish.Had a fun time. Even got some underwater video of fish lurking in the area we fished! Yesterday's Video.

Made it to the Blue River Tuesday afternoon! Had a great time; limited out with six Rainbow Trout. Caught and released a lot more! Tuesday's Video Neare Deere and the GRHEN were key fishing flies yesterday!

No fishing today; did catch up on some fishing needs... tying more olive Near Deere fishing flies. Also, while stuck indoors, decided to recap "fish of interest" that the Team caught this past year! Post

8PM Central going to try a beta test of a Q&A Session on iFishRadio. There is a Chat feature that is supposed to work while broadcasting live. Will see how it goes. More Info.

Update: Thanks for joining us today. Appreciate everyone bearing with us; good to know that the Chat feature requires additional steps for Listeners to chat with us. Going forward, we will plan to find other means for Listeners to send in their questions! Looks like the test failed. We were disconnected at some point and did not find out until after the show! The Team is regrouping; thanks for your patience!

We continue to work through issues with the Spreaker’s Chat feature and the connectivity of iFishRadio. We believe we have identified a workaround for taking questions from Listeners and resolved the connectivity issue. For planning purposes, we would like to re-start the beta test at 10PM Central! Thanks again for your patience!
Beta Test Post.

Overall, had a great time "working hard" to get a limit on the fly on the Blue River yesterday! Caught one on an Olive Near Deere, another with Pink, and then four with White! Saturday's Video.

Quick trip to Bethany for some Switch Rod casting practice. Managed three Bass that went for a White Near Deere this round. Similar to the "swing the rod slowly retrieve" that worked on the trout at Waterloo in Denison and at Frisco Commons, it worked on the Bass at Bethany as well! Fun stuff! Today's Video. Also, of the three suggested fishing flies, setup a Near Deere and GRHEN on a tandem rig to get the Trout to bite this past weekend. Most went for the GRHEN but was good to have the Near Deere on the line as well...Saturday's Video and Sunday's Video.

Ran low on material and made do with the material on hand. Made a Pink/White Near Deere and one we are calling the Mardi Gras Near Deere as it is made with purple and green material, or maybe it will attract fish like Mardi Gras attracts party goers! Post.

Able to try the Mardis Gras Neare Deere Saturday afternoon; caught two and lost one. Then, caught them on other fishing flies including an Olive Near Deere. Video is posted: "Murphy for Trout This Round."

For Sunday, opted to fish a different pond; Near Deere worked great. Bite was good with a limit being taken in short order, and then switched to catch and release fishing while trying different fishing flies. Sunday's Video.

Been having fun fishing for Trout but warm weather is around the corner or already here. Shifting focus to warm water fishing. Looks like the Near Deere works for Bass too! No Bruisers but still fun stuff… Daylight Savings Time rocks! Yesterday's video.

Fighting a cold here; hate it knowing that trout are biting in our area - North Texas and Oklahoma. To make matters worse, our friend in Australia sent a couple of reports of trout biting in Oz! Even sent pics; added them the bulletin board ...Post.

He has been using the Olive Near Deere we sent him several weeks ago. So far, he is having the same issue we had while fishing the Blue River... trout follow but turn away. Luckily, it happened to other fishing flies in the fly box, too. Sounded like deja vu from our last trip to the Blue!

It includes details on how we tie the fishing flies... easy to tie, easy to fish...!



Rain delay but let's talk fishing... for stocker trout! Post. Of interest are two of the three suggested fishing flies are mentioned along with some other tips! Plus a big thanks to our YouTube Subscribers getting us to the 400 mark!

two flies that always catch trout for me:
1. a jigfly- just a 1/100 oz jig with marabou or rabbit fur tail and similar body(instead of cutting off the excess marabou after tying in the tail, twist it into a rope, adding a little spit and palmer it up the hook shank, or use chenille. You can add a little flash
2. a #16 marabou streamer with beadhead. Use above method for tying in the marabou; dark olive or light olive will catch them-p-

Thanks texasflycaster, will have to give the Mop fly a try!

Key fishing fly yesterday - an Orange Near Deere. Took a while to find the pattern; may have been better to have tried the Mop fly, too!

Video of the trout fishing at Turner Falls Park in OK yesterday. December 17, 2016 Post.

I tied clousers and deceivers with purple and yellow color patterns. I call them my Tiger flies. I thought they would be good for fishing in Louisiana.

Variation of the Near Deere pattern where we use the marabou plume used for the tail to make the body. Replaces the chenille. Black Near Deere Variant.

More fly tying this evening. Modified the hackle wrap on the Near Deere from a Palmer to a Dry Fly wrap. Now gotta "test" the Near Deere and the Guadalupana on trout! At least it's an excuse to go fishing! Pictures.

No fishing this evening; fly tying instead... midges for trout in preps for the winter trout stockings! Post. Went with the Zebra Midge but then added red and white to the mix as the trout on the Blue can be choosy at times.

Too nice a day to pass up Turner Falls for more trout fishing. Took longer to get the last fish to make a limit. But, did limit out! 3 of the 5 caught Sunday were on the Nea Deere... Fun stuff!

Lengthy video of the three day trips we took to Turner Falls last weekend. Had a great time trout fishing the river! Added an overview of the area we fished that may be of interest to some. Do check out the video when you get the chance!

Fished Bethany today but used UL Spinning Gear. Did breakout the fly rod briefly and had a couple of strikes but none landed. Did make it to Waterloo Friday and caught a number using Near Deere and the fly rod! Near worked well on the stockers! Video.

Sent sample fishing flies to a Reader; looks like the Near Deere took one and the Guadaulupana took trout, then a spinner to closeout the limit! Pictures.

Been hosting live sessions on YouTube and Facebook to answer questions from viewers. Added a give away of fishing flies in one session. Might as well do another one... plan to host on our YouTube Channel at COAF FIELD TEAM on Friday, 1/11 at 8pm Central. Details provided in the description of our last session. Come join us... plan to host a random drawing for three Near Deere in Olive, Pink, and White.




Details...
To enter the random drawing, submit a comment like "Hi". This will allow us to see your YouTube name and enter it in the drawing. Also, if you are a Subscriber you are automatically entered.

For planning purposes, we will hold the drawing January 11, 2019 at 8PM Central. Do join us then... will keep the session short and sweet - say "howdy" to participants and then go right into the drawing!
