Fly Fishing Tackle, Gear and Flies for Seneca Creek
The fly fishing gear you need for Seneca Creek should be limited as much as possible
because you will need to take it with you either on a short hike or to camp in the
The fish you will catch will be either be small native brook trout or small wild rainbow trout.
You can use a 4 weight floating line. Most anglers would prefer a 5 weight fly line and some
even a 6 weight line for nymphing.
Your leaders should range in sizes from a 0X for small streamers up to a 6X for small dry
flies. You should carry them in lengths ranging from seven and one-half feet, up to 12 feet
You should have extra tippet material ranging from 0X to 6X.
We recommend a 4, 5 or 6 weight fly rod nine feet in length. Most anglers would prefer a
four piece rod so that it will break down into a short length for hiking.
The fly reel you use for the 4, 5 or 6 weight lines should be light but that is about the only
You can get by with out waders if you fish from the banks but it wouldn't be the most
desirable situation. We recommend carrying waders. You may be able to wet wade (wade
without waders) during the summer. Didymo has been found in this stream.
We recommend felt soles for your wading boots. You may want to consider the new rubber
sole boots since Didymo is present.
As always we recommend "Perfect Fly" trout flies. You may can get by using generic and
attractor flies but you will always be better off having specific imitations of the insects that
are most plentiful and available to the trout at the time you plan on fishing.
