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,  White Belly
Sculpin and our Articulated streamers are good flies to use. 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. Golden stoneflies are hatching.
Pale Morning duns are hatching. Spotted sedge caddis are hatching.
Little Yellow stoneflies are hatching.
Terrestrials such as Japanese beetles, Carpenter ants and hoppers are working.
