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 and White Belly Sculpin 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.
Spotted Sedges, or caddisflies are hatching. Cinnamon caddis are hatching.
Sulphurs are hatching.
Terrestrials such as Japanese beetles, carpenter ants and hoppers are working.
