i work right near Walden Pond and was thinking of hitting it up in the early morning a couple of days per week. I was wondering what kind of flies are successful there.

Any help is much appreciated!

Woolly buggers...All colors, dull and flashy...

maybe small 18-20's griffin knats or midge patterns...

If you have those 2 your pretty much covered for any stillwater situation....

Wet flies use to work well for me:
black gnat size 16,18
Soft Hackle size 16,18
also nymphs like:
Pheasant tail, Hare's ear, zug bug

and as just mentioned dwooly buggers always work well.

The trick for the wet fly ... simply cast to the rise & work it slow & pause...I've only caught the random hungry fish when using dry flies

Try a Green & White Clouser. They work all year.

In what situations would you prefer a wooly worm over a wooly bugger?

When the trout start to short hit the bugger I'll usualy shorten the tail or go with wooly worm.
