In most trout bearing waters, may fly populations are prolific and produce predictable hatches. Try the patterns listed below an hour prior before known hatches, as insects are moving from the substrate to the surface. These flies also make good searching patterns when banged along the bottom with split shot. Many of these flies can also be fished as dropper flies attached to larger buoyant dry flies.

Baetis Nymph
Baetis nymphs are swimmers.  They prefer weedy riffles and runs.  Use a "kick screen" in the morning.  If you find Baetis nymphs with wing pads that are very dark, chances are there will be a hatch during that day.  Nymphs will start getting restless in the morning.  This is a good time to pound the bottom with Baetis Nymph patterns.  Tied for the winter hatch. Mark Bachmann pattern.

Quigley's Crown Jewel Green Drake
Green Drake nymphs are robust and very rough looking. Just before they rise to the surface to hatch, many bubbles form under the nymphal skin giving them a shiny translucent look. With the green glass bead and a brass bead at the head, this fly is fairly heavy. a really effective method to fish this fly is to suspend it from a large high floating dry fly on a 20" dropper. An Olive Stimulator in size 8 or 10 is a good be for the dry fly.
