    Default Winter Cuttthroat fishing

    I have tried fishing a few different coloured beads and some flesh flies in the Alouette River and I have had horrible luck. I am guessing there are a few things working against me like water temperature, water levels and maybe just a lack of fish. Well maybe not a lack of fish so much as a lack of experience! I am just looking for little tidbits of advice that may improve my chances of catching and releasing some cutties! Thank you for any response!!!!!

    My all time favorite cutthroat pattern is a size 8 knudson spider. Its a sea run cutthroat pattern that was invented by al knudson of the evergreen Fly Fishing club out of everett washington. the best colors are orange, yellow, and black. works trolled in lakes, swung in rivers, or stripped in the salt for cutthroat and summer steel. If your using a bead or egg pattern, be sure it drifts drag free, im not a big fan of the bead personally, but I wont deny its affectiveness. During the summer I prefer skating dry flies over pocket water. Size 8 adams and size 10 royal wulff being my favorites. My experience is 100% from the states so It could very well be misguided here, please keep that in mind.

    I too have had good success with the Knudsen spider, best in orange or yellow. My buddy invented a nymph pattern that is basically yellow at the back, orange in the middle, and yellow at the front, with dark brown beard and a sparse white wing. It's deadly tied in sizes 8-12. My experience is local, including the Allouette.

    Oh, and dead drifting the spider or my buddy's nymph is not necessary - in fact, movement is essential.

    I only dead drift a bead or egg pattern. Your absolutely right about the spider. That mallard flank really pulsates when you strip it or pull it quickly through the water. If you swing it the current does a good job with making it pulsate too.
