    So I plan on headin' up to Pend Oreille county to fish some of my little secret spots, and I was just wonderin' what flies were flyin' around. (Other than the small, annoying insects we call "mosquitos," which left a few good bites on me last week). Is it too late for Mayflys? What flies are flying right now?

    Thanks!

    I'm not from that area, but I imagine you could find a Callibaetis hatch going on possibly. A great lake mayfly. Preston on the board here has a great article he wrote in the latest Flyfishing and Tying Journal. I always carry that pattern in nymphs, emergers, and parachute duns in my box. Don't be caught dead without them. :)

    TC6,
    You fishin' lake or streams? Big difference in the trout foods in moving and still waters. The country you're headed to has both.
