Does anyone have any recommendations on smallmouth fly patterns to try this time of year?

For river fishing.

I have received as many suggestions as I have talked to other fishers. Met a guy named Mike on the Duper who liked to fish a streamer with a lot of glitter (that silvery thread) and I met another guy who preferred a white steamer. I had been fishing an autumn wooly bugger (Bass Pro) in sizes from 8-10 but lately, with this low water, have had much luck with a black Booglebug popper (see my DuPage reports).
That said, I believe the presentation is 50% (or more) of one's success. Ar they still foraging for crabs or are they switching to the creek chubs and other smaller fish is a question some other members may be able to answer.
Nice thing about smallmouth is they are the bully boys of the river.
