Anyone Use Alevin Patterns
Posted 14 March 2005 - 11:34 AM
I'm just curious if anyone has tried using alevin (sac fry) patterns for steelhead / salmon around the Great lakes? I know the folks out West swear by these patterns at the right time of year but I've heard very little when it comes to our fishers here.
If you've tried it, under what kinds of conditions have they been productive? I would assume that any slower water would be prime, including the mouth of tributaries, etc... but I've never tried it personally.
I tied a few up just in case but would like to have a better idea of exactly how and when to use them come Spring.
Thanks in advance,
