I have been holding out, on my trip to fly fish the tributaries of Lake Erie near the western part of the state to get some rain. I have been to the Cat. and Chatauqua Creek for several years each fall to fly fish for steelhead trout. I use an 8wt-9ft. rod with a floating double taper line with apropriate tipet. The more I think about it I'm wondering about the line and if its the proper type to use on medium size creeks. I usually fish with egg patterns, crystal meth, and eggsucking leaches. Nymphs don't work for me. Can anyone suggest if I'm using the right line or not? I'm going next week because the rain has come and the fish should be making their way up the streams.
