Strategies, Techniques and Tips:
Trout:
The Brown Sculpin, Articulated sculpin streamers, and White Belly Sculpin are good
flies to use during the entire year.
Blue-winged olives are hatching.
Winter Steelhead are hatching.
Aquatic Worms are working.
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..
