Default Questions about Dollies

So I'm obviously very new to AK (Been here about 2 months). And I know winter probably isn't the best time to go out, but here in Seward we are apparently having a very mild winter (Most of the creeks, rivers, and ponds/lakes are still open). So for this time of year if I was gonna go out and try my hand at catching some Dollies what kind of flies would I need to bring with me? I'm assuming some streamer patterns, but would it be beneficial to bring some nymph patterns as well? Or should I just say forget it and wait? I've been dying to get on the water since I moved here. So even if I don't catch anything I still think it would be a fun experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If it were me I would drive over to Cooper Landing and fish the upper Kenai when the temps come back around. Fishing will most likely be slow for you but at least you can get out and fish. Use some flesh, leech, and sculpin patterns. Some folks here might get their feathers ruffled but you could also bring a small selection of beads to round out your offerings. Feel free to PM me if you have any specific questions.

The charm of fishing is that it is the pursuit of what is elusive but attainable, a perpetual series of occasions for hope...
