Strategies, Techniques and Tips:
Trout:
Brown sculpin and White Belly Sculpin are two of the very best flies to use during the
entire year.
Various species of Blue-winged olives will hatch mostly on cloudy days.
Blue-winged olives are hatching.
Winter stoneflies are hatching.
We still think a good strategy is to fish a tandem Midge rig under a small strike indicator
with the midge lava as the bottom fly and the midge pupa as the top fly. Fish the adult midge
only when you observe trout feeding on the surface.
