There are thousands of books covering just about every river and lake in every state. You are going to have to be more specific.

There are lots of hatch charts on the internet, many with pattern suggestions for the various hatches. Do a search and find one typical for your area. For a specific river, you can't beat the local fly shop for up to date info.

Try to tap into the local knowledge, starting with the local fly shop as recommended

by Chase Creek.

 

Don't be afraid to ask other fly fisherman what patterns they are fishing, the worst

that can happen is they will refuse or say something non-committal like 'a wet fly'.

 

Nine times out of ten you'll find some guy who is only too willing to share information

and in lots of cases flies too.

 

Good Luck !
