The weather continues to be very warm and the water temperature is almost reverse
of what it normally is. It gets warmer downstream a few degrees. We expect this to
cause some early season hatches to occur a few days prior to the normal times.

Black Flies, size 18/20, larva, pupa and adults
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.
Winter Stoneflies are hatching. Black Flies are hatching.
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.
