Not sure if you've already gone, but-

Mohair Leeches- Ginger, Olive, and brown, sizes 8-10
San Juan Worms- Red, Tan
Eggs/glo-ball patterns
Copper Johns- Copper, Chartreuse, Red
Pheasant Tail Nymphs
Scuds in Olive, Gray, and Pink
Griffith's Gnat
Midge dries- Cream, dun, and black

That should set you up pretty well for this time of year
