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.
Aquatic Worms are working good.
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.
Little Black Caddis are hatching.
Green Sedges (caddis) are hatching.
Cinnamon Caddis are hatching.
