The stream level is up now but falling. There are plenty of opportunities to fish the
discharge schedule. Our customers did well recently with scuds and sowbugs fished
under an indicator. The cream and light green  midge pupa and larva, fished in
tandem, will always get you some trout.

Strategies, Techniques and Tips:
The Black Matuka and Olive Matuka Sculpin are good flies to use for the larger size
trout. The Brown and White Belly Sculpin streamers are always a good choice. They
work best under low light conditions or in off color water.
Scuds and Sow Bugs are available for the trout to eat year-round.
Cinnamon Caddis are starting to hatch.
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.
Carpenter ants, Japanese Beetles and Grasshoppers will become more and more
important foods to imitate as the summer goes by.
