Have a trip planned to the Grande Ronde in late October with Scott O. Curious from those who have fished it what your favorite patterns and sizes are? I know steelhead rivers can be temperamental on fly patterns - example I would rarely use anything larger than a #6 and often use a #8 or #10 drab pattern on the Klamath but on the N.Umpqua am often using 1/0 and bigger.

I have heard that the GR can be a good place for skating patterns? So any help is appreciated as I am bored and want to start tying!!!!

My favorite Ronde fly is a Black Diamond sizes 6 and 8.

We will be there the first full week of Oct. Might see you there.
