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 Yellow stoneflies are hatching.
Green Sedge Caddis are hatching.Terrestrials are working - Carpenter ants, Japanese
beetles and hoppers.
