What flies work best on the Sipsey Fork?

Hi -

Haven't yet casted for trout in Alabama, but I'm planning on wading and doing some catch and release on the Sipsey Fork in a few weeks. Of course - catch and release is REALLY cool when you're catching!

So - what flies fool the rainbow trout on the Sipsey - and at what time of year? I've seen some posts about midges this winter. What size? What about later into the season - are there any surface or subsurface patterns that are must-haves for Spring, Summer, and Fall? Are there any patters that we should avoid like the plague?

All in all - I just want to make sure I only tie up and cast what's likely to get a hungry rainbow to strike.

Ideas?

Cheers, Michael
