Have never used it on the Guadalupe, but it should work fine if tied in the right sizes (would likely go with 16, 18, and even 20). Also might consider it as an emerger pattern, just lighten up on the elk, shorten the elk to one-quarter or one-half the body length, and might also tie in a tidbit of CDC as an underwing.
