Strategies, Techniques and Tips:
The Brown Sculpin and White Belly Sculpin streamers are good flies to use for larger
trout.
Midges, creams, light greens and blood or red midges, are starting to hatch. It is almost
alway best 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.
Blue-winged olives are hatching.
Aquatic worms are catching trout.
