Imagining a dark olive Rouge Foam pattern with a black hackle collar to keep it from diving on the drag. Black sharpie for the egg sack at the butt end.

still wading too deep

Have you looked at Sofa Pillows or Stimulators with short divided black tails, light olive bodies, black backs, black or slate gray wings and a black hackle or spun black deer hair hackles?

Black Aztec,

Exactly! 30+ years ago those were the flies we used tied on the right sized hook.

Other patterns we might consider are Harry Lemire's "Greased Liner", Bill McMillian's "Steelhead Caddis" and the Muddler. At the end of the hatch you might try traditional spey flies with slate gray dyed oak mottled turkey or teal flank feathers. All in Skawala colors. Will add to your fun!
