alevin and fry flies

For some time the PM and other area rivers have been chuck full of baby salmon or fry as they are properly referred.  I’m sure there are newly hatched steelhead alevin already in the rivers with many more to come.

These alevin and fry are greedily consumed by the steelhead, trout and anything else that might enjoy a delicious sliver of protein.  If your fly box doesn’t include a few patterns that mimic small baitfish your missing the boat.  I often fish these patterns as the trailer on a egg drift rig or as a small streamer worked close to the bank and around cover.

Over on the Indigo site we have three solid patterns: the Alevin Martinez, Baby Salmon and Blueburg.
