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.For larger trout,
the Brown Sculpin and White Belly Sculpin streamers are great flies.
Midges will just about always work on the Frying Pan.
Blue-winged olives are hatching.
Aquatic Worms are also working good.
March Browns are hatching.
Little Black Caddis are hatching.
