Strategies, Techniques and Tips:
The Brown Sculpin and White Belly Sculpin streamers are good flies to use for larger trout.
Blue-winged olives are hatching, They will hatch on and off for the next few weeks.
Matuka sculpin streamers also work good.
We still think the best 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. .
Spotted sedge caddis are hatching.
Pale Morning duns are hatching. Little Yellow stoneflies are hatching.
Terrestrials are working, carpenter ants, Japanese beetles and hoppers.
