Fishing Strategies:

There are a lot of options for fishing the Pine Squirrel leech.  It can be dead-drifted, swung, or stripped like a streamer.  We typically fish the Pine Squirrel leech with 4X tippet and a dead drift presentation with an indicator.  If you want to strip it, remember to keep your retrieval rates slow with this pattern.  We have had success all over Colorado and many other western tailwaters with these tactics.  Leeches are an important part of a trout’s diet, especially in high water conditions.  At higher flow, similar to worms and scuds, leeches are swept off the river’s edge and bottom.  At this point, they become a vulnerable and easy meal for any trout.
