As said. Any lake with trout has chirnomids.

Iíve caught 100 trout in a day at Sundance on a chironomid. Caught trout at Chain Lake on chironomids. Caught grayling in the southern stocked lakes on choronomids.

Trick is to have a range tied. From size 18-10. With and without beads. Bead colour I prefer is white tungsten. Green, black, orange and red beads also.

Colour of body from red, clear, greens, black, gray, wine and two tone and stripped. Body wrap from none to white, red, silver, gold.

Mix it up with a feather or peacock hurl throat. Also a white Tuff out the top.

Lots of fun to tie.
