Strategies, Techniques and Tips:
Various species of Blue-winged Olives nymphs are plentiful and one of the main insect we

The Olive and Black Matuka Sculpin streamers are good flies to use for the larger trout. Brown

Winter stoneflies are hatching.
Midges are hatching. Fish the larva and pupa imitations in tandem.
