Blue is a killer steelheaad color on lake O tribs.

We tie blue egg patterns, for example Beadhead Estaz tied sparse is very effective on the SR dec- feb. Pinners also use small blue beads as well.

Killer pattern on the E Tribs too. Blue is the first and last color egg I'll tie on when I am fishing sun up to sun down. Then I'll switch to whatever the water clarity/flow warrants.

One of my more memorable days in Erie...

Mid January, snow on the ground and certainly below freezing. Fished all day long without a single tug on my line, nobody around us was catching fish. I was working over a pod of fish that wouldn't take anything. Low and behold, the last hour or so of daylight, I was fishing a tandem egg combo of chartreuse and blue. Every other cast produced a strike. That day, I landed one of the largest steelies I've ever caught.

I had good luck on a couple Erib Trib trips with a size 10 - 12 light blue and char scrambled egg pattern....

I found an Elk Hair Caddis tied with a shiny bright blue body, maybe mylar, hanging in a tree. I tied it on the tippet and was shocked at how the small trout attacked it. I clipped it off and put it in my box to tie a few more when I go home. I don't always use it, because it is not as productive as the more natural looking flies, but if I am not catching anything I can usually pick up a fish or two with it. Very strange things going on under the riffles.
