Stratgies, Techniques and Tips:
The Brown Sculpin and White Belly Sculpin streamers are good flies to use for the larger
trout.
Black and Olive Matuka sculpin streamers are also working.
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.
Golden stoneflies are hatch
Little Yellow stoneflies are hatching.
Western Green drakes are hatching
Black carpenter ants are working
Japanese Beetles are working.
Sandwich hoppers are working.
