The discharges and stream levels are running low and that's just fine for this time
of the season. Our customers are catching trout, or at least one did this past
week. The weather is a little cooler and the water clear. Streamers like the Brown
sculpin and stonefly nymphs are working good.

Stream Conditions:






7 Day Weather Forecast:
There is a chance of rain or snow everyday for the
next week but Saturday. Highs will range from 4

2 degrees.

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.
Little Brown Stoneflies are hatching.
Skwala 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.
