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.
Winter stoneflies are hatching.
Little Brown stoneflies are hatching.
Skwala stoneflies are hatching.
March Browns are hatching.
Little Black Caddis are hatching.
