Strategies, Techniques and Tips:
We still think the best 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.
The Brown Sculpin and White Belly Sculpin streamers are good flies to use for larger
trout.
Matuka sculpin streamers are also working good.
Blue-winged olives are hatching. Pale Morning duns are hatching.
Western Green drakes are hatching.
Golden Stoneflies are hatching. Little Yellow stoneflies are hatching.
Black Carpenter ants are working. Japanese beetles are working.
Sandwich hoppers are working.
