Thread: flies for mid to late August

  1. #1

    Default flies for mid to late August

    I was hoping to get a short list 10-12 flies I better not be without if fishing the Keni to the Parks in August.
    So far I figure:
    Fusia & Chart. bunny leeches
    Olive & Blk Woolly Buggers
    Battle Creek Bunny
    Eggs / beads
    Popciles
    sculpins
    Elk Caddis

    Anything else!?
    thanks for the input

    Make sure and include some weighted flies in most the varieties you listed. Although water should be low by then you never know, especially given this summer's character. Also, articulating flesh, muddler and large muddler/sculpin mixed patterns work great (that's flies with two separate sections). Used these up at Lake Creek this last week and just killed it - over forty fish on the same fly, and I still have it. Those articluating flies were weighted as well.
