    The list of flies posted earlier is excellent-- but don't forget a few larger streamers (bead head wooly buggers, bunny leeches, bead head damsels etc,).

    Good Luck!

    This is a great guide and I don't even fly fish. You click on the region you want then on the actual river/lake and get his advice for flies and how to fish it. Great resource.

    P.S. I left you a long post on another post of yours about your fishing license.

    I love the United States for many reasons, but mainly for two things:
    Beautiful scenery...
    And the relationship with the Americans who is still awesome and I have once again the proof !
    Salmonid, I will be very honored to come fish with you :) I never fished salmon, because ... we don't have in France ! It's a dream that you propose to me !
    Thank you Macfish for the link, Last june, i was in Nevada/Utah/Arizona National parks, I drank almost a gallon of water per 2 hours !!!

    September is primetime for river salmon... If you are interested in gear fishing in the Sacramento metro area, I'll bring you out for a day on my boat. Free trip. Let me know?
    Here they come!

    I like to fish hoppers in September. You can't go wrong with the hopper, copper, dropper set up. But be prepared to dredge some nymphs and cast some​
    dry flies.

    Nymphs / size
    Copper John / 14- 18
    Prince Nymph/14-18
    PT Flashback / 16-20
    Harts Dark Lord / 14-20
    Caddis / 16-20
    October Caddis/ 10-14
    Midges / 18-24

    Dries / size
    Hoppers / 6-12
    Elk Hair Caddis / 12-18
    Adams / 14-20
    Griffins Gnat / 20-22

    That should get you started and don't be afraid to add rubber legs to the Hoppers, Copper Johns, and the Prince Nymphs.

    Need infos to fly fishing in september

    Hi !
    I would like fly fishing during my next travel in California in september 2017.
    I'll be between Yosemite and Sequoia NP.
    I don't know witch flies use in this country at this season (type of fly, size, color) .
    In France, i take with me the material to make flies with the insects i see.
    But in this case, I have to travel light ! I need make my flies before the travel.
    This will be my 5th travel at the USA but the first time what i take my rod with me.
    Thank you for your help and sorry for my English (i'm from France)
    Romain
