Trout - Strategies, Techniques and Tips:
Blue-winged olives are hatching. Some areas have good concentrations of various species
of blue-winged olive nymphs and fishing an imitation of them is an alternative strategy.
Brown Sculpin,  White Belly Sculpin and our Articulated and non articulated streamers are
good flies to use. are great flies to use at this time of the year.
Various species of Blue-winged Olives are hatching.
We still think a good 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.

Aquatic worms are working. March Brown mayflies are hatching.
Black flies are hatching. Skwala stoneflies are hatching.
