The Rainbows would eat egg patterns as well as flesh flies.
The problem - if you could call catching too many fish a problem
- was that you would catch more Dollies than Rainbows most times
using those patterns. Though you could catch 10 trout in a row
on egg/flesh patterns - you might then catch another 30 dollies
before catching another trout.
I thought I had it figured out after a few hours fishing. I
would just throw the mouse - and catch just 'Bows. It turns
out that Trout are not the only fish on the Kanektok that will
eat mice. I caught several Dollies and a few Chum Salmon too
- mostly nice big Rainbows though. The sculpin (ours were olive)
proved deadly on the Rainbows - though not as much fun as a
mouse (at least in my opinion.)
