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.
Blue-winged olives are hatching. .
Brown Sculpin and White Belly Sculpin are great flies to use throughout the season.
Black Matuka and Olive Matuka Sculpin streamers are good flies to use at this time.
Winter stoneflies are hatching.
Aquatic worms are working.
