Strategies, Techniques and Tips:
Always check the schedule of releases. Blue-winged olive nymphs have been the
number one producer. The stream is full of various species of small BWOs nymphs and
the trout are always focusing on them. Midges are always hatching and eaten by trout
year-round. Aquatic worms are working.
The Olive and Black Sculpin Streamers are great flies to use for the larger trout. The
Brown Sculpin and White Belly Sculpin are great flies to use anytime.
Scuds are available for the trout to eat all year.
As a backup strategy, we recommend fishing 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.
Winter stoneflies are hatching.
