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.

Brown Sculpin and White Belly Sculpin are two of the best flies to use for the next few
months. The Black Matuka and Olive Matuka sculpins are good flies to use at this time
of the season.
Various species of Blue-winged Olives are plentiful. Blue-winged olives can hatch on
cloudy, overcast days.
Great Autumn Brown sedges are hatching.
