Strategies, Techniques and Tips:
Trout:
Remember, there is a big difference in the lower and upper rivers as far as hatch times
are concerned.
Brown sculpin and White Belly Sculpin are two of the very best flies to use during the
entire year. Articulated streamers work good.
Aquatic worms are working.
Winter stoneflies are hatching.
Various species of Blue-winged olives will hatch mostly on cloudy days.
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..
