during this time year they are really satrting to feed...
by months end they will hit just about anything...
2 years ago I boated one 9lbs (over 30 inches) on a crease fly/floating line
I have caught them on flatwing/streamers/deciever variants from 3-8 inches
I had a 22 incher eat a 9" fly last year and a 28 incher eat a 3 inch fly....go figure...
I typically fish a head of T-14 (25 feet or so) attatched to a floating running line, a 10 -12 foot leader to 8 lb fluro.....(if I am dredging I shorten leader to 4 feet) This rig fished on a 7 weight seems perfect...
goin friday with my 10 year old boy (jared---he will waste hogs with a crocodile on 6lb test)

Body: diamond braid
eyes: black bead chain
wing: light blue ultra hair over pearl blue and olive angel hair
throat: white ultra hair
The thing I like about this one is that it actually looks like a smelt.

Joe's Smelt!! This book is awesome collections of patterns for smelt.
I would take a look to see if you could seine any of the local fry and then try and matcH
