water temperature dictates fly size?

I'm curious if you folks use a rule of thumb to help decide on fly size (or color) as it relates to water temperature for PNW steelhead

On the upper Rogue that's a big Roger that.

As the water warms up a bit, and the flow levels drop, (remembering here we typically use a two fly set up) I'll start the trailer out at a size 6 and end up as small as a 12.
