I am looking to tie some bull trout flies that are proven to catch bull trout. thanks, mike w
Thomas williams ties here
big sculpzillas with dumbell eyes and a yellow picked out dubbin loop head and olive body have been amazing for me. same as the yellow/olive combo ion the link above.
Those are some sweet looking flies. I wish you had a sbs for those!
What's up Eric! Thanks for the commendation. I miss fishing that river! I'm here in Germany chasing big Pike for now!
Big marabou and bunny monsters.
this is NOT my pattern, hell I don't even pretend to tie flys.
With that said, this pattern with a red sz 1 hook slays "s" river bullies
just a note, it is not legal to target bull trout in Washington. I wonder if anyone has been ticketed for catching them. the one I accidentally caught did not fight very hard. mike w
You can target bull trout in some systems in the state. Check the regs for which systems.
As far as flies go, all white bunny leeches. Also black or purple bunny leeches with a chartreuse head.
I caught 11 one day up on the Cascade while steelhead fishing. They're legal in the Skagit system. The biggest I hooked up there was 26 inches. I'm not a dolly/bull trout fisherman so all were released, one was briefly detained while a tape measure was applied.
I have also caught a Big Bull with a big stone fly imatation with a red bead While I was steel head fishing.
All my bullies were caught targeting trout. All were released and none left the water.
my apologies, I thought the state of Washington banned all bull trout fishing. the old dog syndrome. mike w
I'm wondering if this pattern would be productive for big rainbows on the Cedar during high flows (i.e. June), fished deep.
works for bows up to 24" on the yak, bet it works anywhere there's big hungry trout and sculpins!
Well, guess it's vice-time for me!
