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.
Aquatic worms are working.
Winter stoneflies are hatching.
