Fly Fishing Gear, Tackle and Trout Flies - Lower Mountain Fork
We recommend a 5 weight, floating fly line for most all of the fly-fishing. We recommend a 6
weight, floating fly line for nymph fishing and streamers. There are some larger size trout that
are stocked in this stream. A four weight line may be preferred in Spillway Creek.
The four and five weight rods should be between eight and nine feet in length. A medium fast
action would be our choice. The 6 weight rod would be best in a nine foot length and a fast
action. A slightly stiffer tip would help with the nymphs and streamers.
The reel for either of these rods should have a good drag. Disc drags would be preferred.
You should be using at least a 9 foot leader anywhere your fishing the Lower Mountain Fork
River. A twelve foot length or even longer length may be the right choice in some situations
where the water is smooth. You should have them in sizes ranging from 1X for streamers, up to
6X for small dry flies. I wouldn't go any lighter on this stream. You would want much shorter
leaders for streamer fishing.
Carry extra tippet material in sizes ranging from 1X to 6X.
We suggest you wear waders anytime you fish the Lower Mountain Fork River. We prefer the
breathable type but the neoprene ones can help keep you warm if you fish during the cold
Felt soles would be our first choice.
We recommend "Perfect Fly" Trout Flies. Our imitations of specific species of mayflies,
stoneflies, caddisflies, midges, crustaceans, and baitfish are very realistic and effective on this
stream. We have several customers who use our flies exclusively on this river.
