    Color of Chironomid's or Leeches??

    In the fall it doesnt matter what you use. But in the spring...well someone else is going to have to help you out as I have never been there.

    Basic colors, black, red, green, size almost seems more important than color. And then there is presentation! I saw rainbows of color in some boxes last spring. I prefer fishing leeches even when the others were fishing chronomids. Caught many more bigger fish on leeches.

    reddish-browns, otherwise know as leech brown, In early April use black and as the summer comes in start changing to lighter colors in browns and greens, for chironomids. I was up at a YR lake the other day and saw the thickest black chironomid hatch I have ever seen. . .

    Location, Location, Location and then depth. Seem to better keys in spring there. But above mentioned colors have all worked for me.

    Depth or "zone"
    in that order. Even then, shades of light or dark is usually enough
