Strategies, Techniques and Tips:
For larger trout, the Brown Sculpin and White Belly Sculpin streamers are great flies. Our
articulated streamer patterns are big fish flies for sure.
The Olive Matuka and Black Matuka Sculpin Streamers are great flies to use for the larger trout.
Crawl them on the bottom in the deepest water.
Blue-winged olives are hatching.
We still think a good 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.
Spotted sedge caddis are hatching.
October Caddis are hatching.
Western Ginger Quills are hatching.
Little Sister caddis are hatching.
Green sedge caddis are hatching.
Little Yellow stoneflies are hatching.
Japanese beetles are working. Carpenter ants are working. Sandwich hoppers are working.
