    I think my wife and I are going to be camping there this coming weekend. Was wondering if anyone has any info on what flies I might try out and what color rooster tails might work for my wife to catch a fish on. PM me if you don't want to post up here. Thanks for any and all info.

    Well if your trolling from a boat then I like to use a flatfish lure on my spinning rod and with My fly rod, I'll drag a wolly bugger (black leach) with enough weight at the top of my leader to get it down to about 15'. If your morning casting then I'd check the hatch and us some thing like a small nymph or dry flies like a caddis pattern. You might try calling http://www.paradisecreekanglers.com/fly_shop.html or just stop by there. I've never been there but I hear they are nice.

    Good luck

    I've always done well with zugbugs in the Whites. Drop a black zeeb off the back of it.
