    I don't see why not. Its gonna be cold, but thats a relative term. Since your from AK it might be down right tropical if you hit the weather right.

    Any advice on what to tie? I bet Washintonian lake fish eat way different stuff than Alaskan lake fish... Ours eat wooly buggers, and anything that looks like a leach or dragonfly

    if your in a float tube in late november (like me) your gonna want to keep moving. slowly and deeply drag a mini leech behind you with the occasional twitch. hopefully others will chime in with more and better patterns for you.

    I was thinking stuff like white ghosts might be good? Aren't there a lot of minnow eating browns?

    I've had success with larger white streamers. White with a little red and/or silver. Like Scott said, let us know when you'll be there.
