Haven't caught too many but the ones I've caught have fallen to a fly I've dubbed the estaz bug. Real easy pattern to tie.
Here's a picture and tying instructions.

Small and red with a bead, vertically worked, sinker on the bottom. Fly should be worked just above the bottom barely moving the sinker.

They eat a lot of midge larva in the lake I fish for them. woolly bugger with a midge dropper trolled slow around 20 ft. down over muddy flats. You'll catch all kinds of critters doing this.

I stopped for 20 minuetes on the way home from work the other night and a nice one took a grey ghost. They do seem to like woolly buggers though. Last night I caught a nice pickeral that took a small muddler with a black maribu tail. I have been using a fly called the goldie a lot this season and they really like those. There is a picture of it on the Bills Bodi Braid website. The smallies loved this fly too. Essentially it is just a piece of gold bodi braid tied on a hook with a bead head and once the material is tied in you pick the tube apart so the mylar flows or breaths when you strip the fly.
