Ditto TODDFATHER. Big ugly black stoneflies have always gotten it done for me in the spring. Dark collored ESL's work pretty well for me at that time too. In the fall, while salmon fishing I've had Steelies hit mostly egg flies, but I haven't spent alot of time targetting them in the fall/winter. Good luck.
Hands down in the spring time it would be a Stonefly.
That's what got me into tying flys,No one sold them unless i went to cabelas to get them or pay up to $2 bucks a piece at the bait shop.i went through 7 last spring in under a hr,having them break my 6lb test on the Huron.
By Spring i'll have a fly box full of stoneflys and some.
