Remember, there is a big difference in the lower and upper rivers as far as
hatch times are concerned.
Midges are hatching. Fish the larva and pupa imitations in tandem for the best results.
Brown sculpin and White Belly Sculpin are two of the very best flies to use during the
entire year.
Various species of Blue-winged olives will hatch mostly on cloudy days.
Winter stoneflies are hatching.
