Last week, after nothing was hitting my nymphs, I tied on a Clouser Minnow streamer and sight-cast to a large group of feeding trout, with success.
Anyone else fish streamers this time of year for trout? I mainly fish the Arkansas River below Pueblo Reservoir.

I fish wooly buggers a lot for trout now. They work very well. They are easy to fish, too. No fancy technique necessary.

I like a Spruce streamer for trout in PA.

The hornberg tied as a streamer with an iridescent mylar body wrap, or with something like "sparkle braid", has been a killer on brookies, browns, and rainbows for me. Big fly, big fish.

I also use a Hornberg streamer, but with a copper tinsel body.

An egg sucking bunny leech is very seductive

Copper anything has been proven over and over as a serious benefit...

A couple years ago I tied a bunch of ridiculously long articulated streamers for a guide/friend... not castable, but incredibly productive...

Micky Fin either original or Clouser style has caught multiple species for me. Same or better for the Chartruese/White Couser from bonefish to silver salmon.
Lefty Kreigh is at over fifty species for that one, I might be half way there. The muddler and variations are killers too, warm water cold, salt, fresh, it just works. And it works from on top to dredging it. These and the bugger variations are usually in the box regardless of what I am going after.

Slim tied bead head bunny flies have also worked for me both in lakes and streams. Caught my largest trout a 26.5" rainbow with a 15" girth on a black bunny.

Black and white Dolly Llama is probably the most used streamer in AK. And for good reason.
