Anyone know if trout would avoid them for this reason? If they do no real point in pursuing the pattern, at least in red anyway.


They were thick here this last summer:

I thought of trying to tie, but I to wondered if they are fish food.

Noreaster, you don't have stink bugs up there? Lucky you! From September to late October my windshield gets covered with the stinky boogers!

I don't think trout key in on them much though, maybe they have a foul taste or something. Every now and then one of my dogs would grab one and the faces they would make...priceless!

When I walked my dog, I would see big stink bugs all the time. They would stop and raise their rears. My dog was all dog and tried to sniff that rear area...what can I say, I have a wiener dog, his nose is already down there...LOL He usually did a quick sniff and only one per trip....

I have seen those a lot in southern Idaho, but here in Utah, they are the bright orange or red tipped ones.

With the neck still cramping I do find good moments and as already pointed out, I too am under a nice fresh blanket of snow, so out of boredom, I find my way to the vise. I managed a couple biot BWO's size 20

When ever I see one the other isn't to far behind I don't think they're the same species but close enough. Both are "stinky" when you try and kill them. I tried to find some info on weather trout do eat them and apparently pellet heads will as they look like trout kibble. Wild fish supposedly know better.
