Strategies, Techniques and Tips for Trout:
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.
Different species of Blue-winged Olives nymphs are plentiful in the lower Sac.
The Brown Sculpin and White Belly Sculpin streamers are the best streamers to use at
this time. Articulated sculpin streamers are working good.

Little Sister Caddis are hatching.
Western Ginger Quills are hatching.

Spotted Sedge caddis are hatching.
Japanese beetles are working. Carpenter ants are working.
Sandwich hoppers are working.
