Strategies, Techniques and Tips:
Little has changed in the best strategy to use on the Green River during the past month.
Scuds, Blue-winged Olives and Midges are still at the top of the list. Scuds and sowbugs
are present year-round.
The Black Matuka and Olive Matuka Sculpin are good flies to use for the larger size
trout. The Brown Sculpin and White Belly Sculpin are great streamers to use.
Scuds are available for the trout to eat year-round and can be important in the Spring
months.
Aquatic worms are working.
We still think a good strategy is fishing 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.
Various species of Blue-winged Olives, are hatching.
Little Black Caddis are hatching.
Cicadas are hatching.
Pale Morning duns are hatching.
