hello and questions
« on: August 16, 2015, 02:22:10 PM »
Hi, I have been fly fishing since I was 14.   I live in Indiana.  I will be in the Crested Butte area, specifically Lake Irwin, Lost Lake in mid October.  Any suggestions on fly patterns/sizes for both lake and stream?  Any suggestions on lake fishing?  I have never lake fished for trout.   I have read that Anthracite Creek has some trout so may poke around there.   Is there a fishable creek below Lake Irwin?  Thanks in advance.  I have not fly fished for trout in several years and ready to get back at it.

Hi indyal. Best of luck on your trip. Its hard to say what will work best at that time of year. Here's hoping you don't get too much snow! :D

I haven't been to that particular area before, but I would first try to find cruising fish and use large attractor patterns. If that doesn't work, try nymphs a few feet under an indicator or stripping leeches.
