  • Cooper Creek Fly Pattern Recommendation

    Hello Everyone

    I'm planning to go to Cooper Creek for fishing this week and wanted to see if anyone who has fished it can provide me some suggestions for this time of year!

    Thanks!

    Assuming you’re gonna be around the camping/family/heavily stocked areas: olive wooly booger, eggs (peach, yellow, pink, red), gold ribbed hares ear, prince nymph, small leech, y2k, San Juan’s. These subsurface flies will get the most attention from stockers. Up top, adams, parachute Adams, and pretty much anything with a combo of yellow tan and/or white.

      Haven't been to the mountains lately, but in addition to the excellent list above, probably good to make sure you have beetles and ants.

        I concur with Buckman, especially with Prince Nymphs. Try a size 16 bead-head Prince Nymph on every cast- whether as an anchor fly or as a dropper beneath a woolly bugger.
        If you have difficulty understanding the post above, read it out loud and it should make sense. This NGTO member is known for his poor hill-billy upbringing and his affinity for all things from Louisiana (particularly if it relates to LSU). It makes for a poor mix of accents and much difficulty in translation. He was doing well for so long, but now seems to have regressed.

          +1 Take buckman's advise and you will have plenty of fun dealing with trout on the end of your line! Let us know how it works out..

            One little mountain man secret, especially if there are good looking girls to impress, is to tip a kernel of corn, or pinch off a piece of red wiggler, and tip a bead headed prince nymph. If you wear a truckers cap, you can usually hide some niblets around the sweat band. Be careful, make sure no one is looking first!
