Strategies, Techniques and Tips:
Trout:
Brown sculpin, White Belly Sculpin and Articulated streamers are working are some of
the very best streamer flies to use during the entire year.
Various species of Blue-winged olives will hatch mostly on cloudy days.
Blue-winged olives are hatching.
Mahogany duns are hatching.
October caddis 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.
