    Ahh ok, that makes more sense. Having the weight 4 ft away is just snag-worthy bottom bouncing more than anything else. So I default back to my previous posting, though the tungsten probably wouldn't hurt!

    Yeah, 4' or less. The fly can also be slightly weighted but not enough that jerking the fly could result in snagging. I think I'll opt for the 8 lb tippet. Maybe I'll even drop down to 6 lb- not sure on that. I have been told that salmon are not line shy so go ahead and use a 10 lb tippet. What about steelhead? If you use a smaller diameter tippet do you get more strikes? On the flies, I know bright colored egg patterns are recommended but what about plain or dark patterns? Would an olive woolly bugger be a standard choice or is it a once in a while thing?

    Forget the weight! All the chromers you want right now at Douglaston and Ballpark. Large beadhead stoneflys and copperjohn stoneflys no additional weight!

    Lately I've had the most luck swinging white streamers, plus I've had more fun doing it... I promised myself that this season I'd work on improving my streamer game and the white ones (like Moto's Minnow) have done the best so far.

    Problem im having is the streamers are catching salmon(nice problem)and the steel seem to be tucked in to the rock riivlets and cut away embankments where swinging a streamer is virtually impossible and definitely impractical. Egg patterns are doing nothing but big stones are getting hammered . As much as I'd rather hookup on a controlled streamer sweep I have to go with what works the stonefly nymphs. Now AJ if you want to give up where your getting them on streamers I'll gladly switch! Haha!

    Anyone fish the SR from Nov.-April ? I'm new here, but not new to wading through the drifts to get to some steel. Last winter was different. I go one or two days every 2 weeks thru April. I'll put up some reports if anyone is interested. I generally highstick nymphs and sucker spawn patterns, occasionally swing crayfish and sculpins low in the column.
