Default Fly fishing Deep Creek Lake MD

Looking for some advice. I generally only fish rivers for trout. What kind of flies would you recommend for catching bass, perch, and bluegill on a lake?

Anything is appreciated as I know nothing. Thanks!

What won't bluegill hit? I find that the crystal bugger is a great fly for bass and bigger bluegill. I like it b/c the small bluegill won't get hooked and you can fish it with short strips. I find anything with a marabou tail and some green flash will attract bass and bigger bluegill also, but for perch I would use something with orange/red in it

I know this is a little bit late but here goes. I have a place at deep creek it is great for small mouth with a fly rod, however the trout in the lake are next to impossible on flies. You said you enjoy river fishing for trout and there are some fantastic rivers within twenty minutes of the lake. The north branch of the potomac(near barnum wv), the savage, the yoch and cassleman are all great. You can look them up online or let me know if you need any more info on them
