elk hair caddis is a must...weather may be warm by then...wooly buggers, copper johns and stoneflies are the local favs....stream has a healthy population of smallies and bluegills....don't be suprised if we hit in the mix with a few of each...nymphing is big on this little flow...mostly flies tied in 14 to 8....may not hurt to have a few early season dries in the box

the caddis i can do, but i really suck at the most other dries. to bad it wont be warm enough for terrestrials, i can tie those pretty good.

 

do you think it will be warm enough for streamers?

 

i will tie up a bunch of stones and caddis too then. hmm, wonder what else i can create devil.gif

SDHflyfisher,

 

The water at Brookville is a tailwater where the water temp stays pretty constant year around. I would guess that you would fish such waters the same year around.

true, SDH...water temps in tailwaters typically do not flucuate that much...I always start with a bugger of some kind, depending on flow and color of the water....I have found that unless it is the midwinter, it is not neseccary to go small, unless there is a nice midge hatch going...we typically do not go smaller than a 14 with anything on a tailwater....olive and rust buggers work nice , especially in 8's and 10's...if the water is a bit warmer, I will go to a 6 or larger....gonna tie some nice elk hair caddis and few Stimulators just in case a hatch is on...that late into the winter in this area and temps in the 60's are not unreasonable.....some nice dry fly action is a real possibility! wink.gif

the farmington has a lot of good hatches of small winter cadiss and midges that is why i mention it

in the summer i get some of the biggest browns to hit a goddard caddis skated across the surface

good point, but Brookeville is a bit south for the end of Feb to be considered a winter hatch
