Strategies, Techniques and Tips:
Some areas have good concentrations of various species of blue-winged olive nymphs and fishing an
imitation of them is an alternative strategy.
Fish the Black Matuka and Olive Matuka Sculpin or the Brown or White Belly Sculpin streamer anytime
during low light conditions, or early and late in the day. They are good flies for the larger trout.
Little Brown stoneflies are hatching. Skwala stoneflies are hatching.
Midges are hatching good.
