The GB variant with the dyed hackle looks interesting; creative idea! A lot of patterns work well with a different colored butt. For example, Salmon/Steelhead patterns like the Skunk and the Black Bear are generally tied nowadays with either a GB or a RB. Let us know how the fish like it!
I used the 2x hook because during this time of the year they are releasing a higher flow rate from the dam due to the spring rains and just like you said to "get it down in the water column quickly" I feel this P&O along with the GB variant will fish well for the trout but I will keep you posted.
