Just before the first salmon return to the rivers, the trout start keying in on bright attractor fry patterns. Hot Pink & White is a favorite for hooking these voracious predators.
AK Clouser Minnow – Hot Pink/White #6
Our custom AK Clouser in hot pink/white is tied on a nickel-plated long shank hook. Hot Pink/White are the two colors for sea run Dolly Varden and Cutthroat off the beaches, and is a very good for rainbow and char in the rivers just before salmon begin dropping eggs.
