There are still plenty of good hatches taking place and our sculpn streamers are also
working good. Fish the tailwater below Dillon down to Green Mountain Reservoir for
the best results. Below Green Mtn is also okay.

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.
W
inter stoneflies are hatching.
