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. .
Spotted Sedges, or caddisflies, are hatching.
