Discharges and stream levels are running higher than normal. There's still a lot of trout
being caught buy drift boats.. There's still a lot of insects hatching.

Midges: Cream, size 20/22, larva, pupa and adults
Midges: Light Green, size 20/22, larva, pupa and adults

Aquatic Worms, size 12, pink, red, and others
Pale Morning Duns, size 16/18, nymphs, emergers, duns and spinners
Little Yellow Stoneflies, size 16/14, nymphs and adults
Strategies, Techniques and Tips:
The Olive Matuka and Black Matuka Sculpin Streamers are great flies to use for the
larger trout. Crawl them on the bottom in the deepest water. Brown Sculpin and White
Belly Sculpin are great flies to use at this time of the year.
Various species of Blue-winged Olives 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.
Aquatic Worms are working good.
Pale Morning duns are hatching.
Little Yellow stoneflies are hatching.
