Strategies, Techniques and Tips:
The Black Matuka Sculpin and Olive Matuka Sculpin are good flies to use for the larger
size trout.
The Brown Sculpin, White Belly Sculpin and our new Articulated streamers are always a
great choice.
Scuds and sowbugs are available for the trout year-round.
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.
Little Black caddis are hatching.
BWOs are hatching.
Aquatic worms are working.
Winter stoneflies are hatching.
