What color eggs are being eaten in the rivers in Snohomish county? Was going to tie some Steelhead egg flies, but not sure what color to use? Pink, Red or Peach color? 4, 6 or 10mm ? Otter's Soft Eggs Is what I was wanting to use with some egg veil. I probably wont use them, but depending on my location, I might. I heard that eggs are bad for catch and release and I almost always release the fish I catch. But I want to tie some and add to my fly box.
